Data Driven Measurement of Education Practices

Location: Independence Ballroom A Level:

Secretary of Education Arne Duncan has recently made data driven improvements in education processes and delivery a priority. He is careful to ensure that there are metrics that are meaningful in this process, and cites “building data systems that measure student success and [that] inform teachers and principals how they can improve their practices; and turning around our lowest-performing schools”. Senior Advisor to the Secretary, Brad Jupp, will tell us what the Department is doing in this regard and how it sees the use of data to make major gains.

Brad Jupp

Office of Secretary of Education

Brad Jupp is a Senior Program Advisor in the Office of Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. He is on loan to the Secretary’s Team from the Denver Public Schools (DPS) where for the past 24 years he has been a teacher, union leader and senior administrator. His most recent assignment was Senior Academic Policy Advisor to Superintendent Michael Bennet. In that role he shaped district direction in a wide range of fields, including individual, school and performance management and accountability; school choice, new school development and school portfolio management; and the management of educator human capital. Prior to that assignment, Jupp spent 19 years as a middle school language arts teacher, and an activist in DPS’s teacher union, the Denver Classroom Teachers Association (DCTA). From 1999 to 2005 he led the joint district/union effort to develop and implement the Professional Compensation System for Teachers, ProComp. ProComp is a nationally recognized, path-clearing effort to reform the way teachers are paid, so their annual and career earnings are based, in part, on the academic performance of the students they teach. In his most recent classroom work Jupp held his dream job as lead teacher of the DPS Alternative Middle School. There he taught at risk sixth, seventh and eighth graders. From 1990 to 2002 he served the chief negotiator for the DCTA’s bargaining team.
