Working Group Education Data

The working group Education Data analysed the legal and political issues regarding education data. This included addressing the availability and provision of Schülerkerndatensätze, datasets on students on the level of the Länder. Another issue is the provision of state-level identifiers (Bundesland-Kennungen) in large datasets. By bringing together central strategic stakeholders, the working group aimed at opening up a debate and initiating improvements for the researchers in this field.
