Briefing Educates Hill Staff on Education and Workforce Data Issues

Yesterday I presented to congressional staffers on the importance of measuring and reporting student attainment of non-degree credentials such as industry-recognized certifications, licenses and postsecondary certificates, as part of a briefing hosted by the Workforce Data Quality Campaign. The WDQC has developed a set of legislative recommendations focused on the need for expanded reporting on credentials earned; greater use of administrative data, such as unemployment insurance wage records, to measure employment outcomes; and enhanced data sharing among states and between education and workforce systems. ACTE is happy to be a WDQC partner and to take part in educating Hill staff on this important topic!

Please take a few minutes to reach out to your Senators and urge them to vote YES on this bill.
