PERSPECTIVES + OPINIONS Doing the Right Thing An approach to educational decision making that is both ethical and data-driven

Four steps of sound educational decision-making, according to the authors of “Educational Goods: Values, Evidence and Decision-Making”
  1. Identify the main values at play. What are you trying to achieve?
  2. Identify the key decisions related to those values. What are the possible courses of action that can help you achieve those values?
  3. Assess how well actions identified in Step 2 promote the values you identified in Step 1. Look at data and social science evidence. What intel does it offer on your proposed courses of action?
  4. Identify policy that brings greatest return regarding the values identified in Step 1. What are the trade-offs to each proposal, and which trade-off is worth it?
