YRS: Pupil Data Set


Rewired State and Young Rewired State were given access to the National Pupil Dataset, made available courtesy of The Department For Education over the weekend of July 7th – 8th, 2012. It’s not everyday you get to interview Michael Gove MP who was, at the time, The Education Secretary.  This video gives the viewer an overview of what was covered and discussed over the weekend.  This hack was based around the National Pupil Dataset, a vast and unique dataset that includes the anonymized national public exam results of around 600,000 English schoolchildren through key stages 2, 4 and 5.
