There are many people in different roles who need to make decisions about education. This includes not only State and local policy makers who are determining the best use of limited resources, but also a high school student trying to determine what course of study may have the best outcomes in terms of getting into college or finding a job. And, like any other decision - having sound objective information leads to better decisions.

The MLDS Center is committed to providing all education decision makers with data driven information that will help inform their decisions. This site will highlight information specifically for different groups.
