DATA COMMITTEE

About the Data Committee

The Generation Next Data Committee seeks to enhance the efforts of the Generation Next Leadership Council, staff, and networks. It seeks to empower these groups to use data effectively to plan, implement, monitor, and improve the activities of Generation Next. In this way, it supports evidence-based decision-making and the continuous improvement of Generation Next; it promotes the aims of Generation Next to increase academic achievement and close the achievement gap among the Twin Cities’ low-income students and students of color.

  • Quality standards and policies regarding indicators used to monitor education and to measure goal achievement

  • Development & testing of new goals and measures for Generation Next
