In these comments, the Center for American Progress applauds the U.S. Department of Education for the changes proposed to the Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) and offers some additional suggestions for proposed revisions to the 2021–2022 CRDC collection, such as the collection of data on LGBTQI+ populations, further disaggregation of data on students’ race/ethnicity, and the collection of new data points about school infrastructure. The suggestions, combined with current changes already proposed by the department, will provide advocates and policymakers with the data they need to address gaps in education access and opportunity to ensure that all students have access to a high-quality education.
