What’s Working: Harnessing the Power of Information to Improve Education - Allan Golston, President, U.S. Program, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Forward movement in education, like any type of progress, happens in waves. And as we approach the end of the year, I’ve been thinking a lot about how access to good data and smart uses of it can lead us to the next wave of progress.We are fortunate to live in an era awash in information of all kinds. Our challenge is to ensure we are best utilizing that information to close gaps in education and help all students succeed. We’re inspired and encouraged by the work our partners, leading institutions and programs, and educators have done throughout 2016 to make information accessible, actionable, and relevant to improving education for all students, and we look forward to continuing these efforts in 2017 and beyond.
