Executive Summary

At a time when public resources are scarce, policy decisions regarding investments in children and families must take into account rigorous evidence about the likely effectiveness of those investments. With public accountability as a goal, the Durham community establishes the Durham Children’s Data Center. Initial partners in the Data Center include the Durham County Manager’s Office, the Durham Public Schools, the Durham Partnership for Children, and Duke University. The Data Center will be governed by a team of Durham community leaders and will be co-led initially by Durham Public Schools Superintendent Bert L’Homme, Assistant Durham County Manager Drew Cummings, and Duke University Professors Kenneth Dodge and Clara Muschkin.
