what is your job title?

CEO/Founder, K-12 News Network

have you used open data or open source tools before?

Yes, and I will be using much more of it under new Local Control Funding Formula school finance reporting laws. Past example: k12newsnetwork.com/blog/2012/06/05/ca-state-senate-education-voter-guide-june[masked]/ [Defunct, prolly because old Assembly/State Senate district maps have been retired: http://k12newsnetwork.com/blog/2011/05/04/ca-school-funding-map-tool/]

In what area would you like to help building our data science community?

No answer yet

Introduction

I work to make education budgets & local public school governance more accessible to the parents, teachers, & students who teach/learn there. I do this by merging grassroots citizen media watchdogging of schools with an online activism platform.
