“Using Student Data to Engage Families”?

Using Student Data to Engage Families is the theme of October FINE Newsletter from Harvard (published by the Harvard Family Research Project).

Though I’m a big believer in the use of data, I think in terms of being “data-informed” and not “data-driven.” Unfortunately, most of the time others talk about data, they use it in terms of being “data-driven.”

I don’t think all of the FINE articles in this newsletter have that tone, but some make me a bit wary. It’s still worth a look, and FINE’s newsletter is a must-read for anybody interesting in parent involvement issues.
