Preparing Students for Jobs

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

WDQC and the Data Quality Campaign, a national partner that promotes effective use of data by education stakeholders, recently released a fact sheet that looks at how states are utilizing workforce data to help prepare students for successful careers. The fact sheet is based on information from the 2013 Data for Action survey of states conducted by the Data Quality Campaign. The survey asked several questions associated with WDQC’s State Blueprint, which recommends that states have an inclusive, cross-agency data governance council and conduct skills gap analyses to assess alignment between education/training programs and labor market demand.
