Article 1

This summer, the Kauffman Foundation launched EdWise, a new online database designed to help school districts, non-profit organizations, and policymakers better understand the educational landscape and make informed education decisions. 

Comprising 14 million records, EdWise catalogs K-12 Department of Education statistics from Missouri and Kansas. EdWise allows users to explore 25 years of school and district data in a range of categories, such as assessments, demographics, finance, staff, and transportation. 

The Kauffman Foundation spent three years developing EdWise, collaborating with state departments of education, local school districts, and researchers in education to ensure the accuracy of the data and ease of use.
