The Education Department has two ambitious goals to reach by 2020: see the U.S. become the nation with the highest percentage of college graduates in the world, and see low income and minority students find the same successes as their peers in graduating from high school and having access to college education. The department's Open Government Plan is key to achieving these goals. Jill James is director of ED.gov in the Office of Communications and Outreach. She joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss the plan and how Education is communicating with the public.

OMB Director Sylvia Mathews Burwell sent a memo to agency leaders outlining six steps they must take to make administrative information about everything from grantees to contractors to anything that is collected for the purpose of carrying out the basic administration of a program, such as processing benefit applications or tracking services received, more available internally and externally.
The Office of Management and Budget's markup of the Senate's version of the bill changes language around requiring data standards and how the information should be published. Open government advocates are concerned about OMB's suggestions.
Seven months after the White House issued a new policy and executive order, some agencies have met the requirements to release their data inventories and create a "/data" page. But many agencies have yet to follow through on the milestones.
The Obama administration's second Open Government National Action Plan introduces 23 new or expanded commitments to open government, including measures to strengthen whistleblower protections and improve the declassification process.
House leaders say the DATA Act has a good chance at becoming law this session. Support for the bill from the Senate and the White House seems to be increasing.
