Centering Equity and Student Voice in Education Data

March 1, 2021

When we interact with data, our own biases and stereotypes often ignore the real stories and lives of the people behind the numbers. For Dr. Ivory Toldson, the solution to this problem lies in learning to recognize and discard “bad stats.” Education Northwest CEO Patty Wood sat down with Dr. Toldson to learn how the Howard University professor defines bad stats; where we can find reliable, people-centered data; and how to structure our system to center the voices of our students.
