The Campaign for College Opportunity, the USC Pullias Center for Higher Education, and the California Student Aid Commission hosted a Capitol Conversation to deconstruct data, to understand the state’s data landscape, and to discuss how data can be used as a tool to improve student access to higher education. Jorge Aguilar, Superintendent of Sacramento Unified School District; executive director of the Education Trust–West, Ryan Smith; Lupita Cortez Alcalá with the California Student Aid Commission; and Marie Groark with Get Schooled shared how they utilize data to inform educators and counselors to better serve their students, guide students to the next step in their educational journey, and inform the public of gaps in data systems in order to hold those in power accountable for the success of our state’s students.
