Pivotal Role of Policymakers as Leaders of P-20/Workforce Data Governance - This report contends that, while most states have established data governance processes that span the P–20W spectrum, the majority of states’ data governance structures lack the executive-level policymaker oversight necessary to systematically overcome these obstacles. The author asserts that policymaker leadership is critical to garner the political will and resources to address the barriers of turf, trust, technical issues, and time.
