Simply having an LDS will do nothing to benefit students


An LDS alone does not improve education
Just as a new, high-tech cell phone will not make a busy life any more manageable if used like an old rotary, a new LDS will not serve an organization any better than the legacy system if it is not put to good use. A sophisticated LDS can be a tremendous tool for shedding light on the nuts and bolts of education, and for improving student outcomes. However, agencies must be aggressive and creative in using their LDS to take advantage of its full potential.
