(November 17, 2014) Today CEPI and the Michigan Department of Education (MDE), along with the Library of Michigan, hosted a seminar for Michigan journalists who report on education.
Michigan Education Data – Information and Access (MEDIA) was the focus of the session. Sixteen journalists participated in a tour of MI School Data fundamentals, followed by hands-on exploration of some recent enhancements. MDE then demonstrated resources and tools found on its website, with a special focus on accountability and finance information. The afternoon session covered ways to access data files, how to obtain school directory information, and education resources offered by the Library of Michigan.
