Live US Education Data

I just learned about this — a one-stop shop set up by the US Department of Education to provide a bunch of publicly accessible data.  Pretty interesting, scary, and sad.

Percentage of Georgia low-income 8th grade kids proficient in reading in 2008-2009: 14%. In Mathematics: 13%

For Black kids (37.7% of the states K-12 students): 8th grade Reading: 15%, Math 11%.

The data is accessible in Excel formats, too.  Want some live data for your CS classes to crunch?  Here’s some pretty interesting and relevant data to explore.

ED Data Express is a Web site designed to improve the public’s ability to access and explore high-value state-level education data collected by the U.S. Department of Education. The site is designed to be interactive and to present the data in a clear, easy-to-use manner, with options to download information into Excel or manipulate the data within the Web site. The site currently includes data from EDFacts, Consolidated State Performance Reports (CSPR), State Accountability Workbooks, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), the National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP), the College Board, and the Department’s Budget Service office.
