Data cultures and teacher perceptions

Teacher: I used to think I was bad at data. My last school was so data focused that I always felt that I wasn’t a data person. But then I came to this school and now I realise I’m not so bad…

Interviewer: Do you see yourself as a data leader at this school?

Teacher: I wouldn’t say that. But, I don’t approach data with as much trepidation as many of the other teachers around here… Some teachers see data as ‘more work’. I see data as a way to get more ‘bang for my buck’ if you know what I mean.
