Greater Greater Education

Congratulations Sandra Moscoso, OpenGov champion!

The Sunlight Foundation has named Greater Greater Education contributor Sandra Moscoso as an "OpenGov Champion" for her efforts to get more open education data in DC for parents and policymakers. Sandra also talks about her quest to ensure funding for school librarians and the effect librarians have on children, which she has blogged about here.

Also, Sandra shows off her bicycle-family cred by having 4 (or is that 5?) bicycles in the background during the interview. Congratulations, Sandra!

Thank you all for the kind words and support! Would love to see families coming together to advocate for transparency not just from DC govt, but from their schools. I'm learning a lot about where the hold ups are in accessing data, and while I can't confirm this, the hold ups don't necessarily appear to be at data.dc.gov or at OSSE... I feel like we need to push for transparency from out schools, as well as from OSSE and remind officials and educators that the data is, in fact ours, and that we rely on it to make our own decisions about how to educate our children and how to advocate for their schools.
