After Al Gore Invented the Internet, Eric Oemig Invented the Number System

Senator Oemig was the first to think about data and measurement in public education. Just ask him, he'll tell you:
So getting, reporting and acting on data has been a priority of Sen. Eric Oemig, D-Kirkland, since he took office in 2007.

“How do you change a system that is entrenched?” Oemig asked. “You make compelling cases supported by data.” But he remembers the initial reaction.

“My first year, everyone was ‘Data What?’ Now it’s, ‘of course we need data,’” he said. “It’s a big transformation.”
Every EdD issued before 2007 is hereby revoked.
