While states have been busy with their legislative sessions over the past few months, two newly released national resources for education data have caught our eye at America Succeeds. These resources align with our core principles of transparency, return on investment, and putting students at the center of decision-making.
Last week, Google announced a $600 million investment to expand their data center in Pryor, Oklahoma. The investment created an additional 100 jobs in the area. This announcement arrived alongside similar ones about funds granted to data centers in Michigan and Texas. In total, Google is investing $13 billion in data centers across the country.
America Succeeds is excited to announce a new addition to our team! Cynthia Vu will be joining us for the summer as a Communications Intern, through the Princeton Internships in Civic Service Program.
Each year, America Succeeds brings together the leaders of each of our affiliate organizations for a few days of team building, learning, and fun. This year we gathered in beautiful Breckenridge, CO to listen to Alex Johnston, President and Founder of Impact for Education.
