NASWA recommendations to Commission on Evidence-Based Policymaking

NASWA members and staff share expertise and provide up-to-date information on challenges and proven practices related to evidence-building. Since WIOA passed, NASWA has hosted numerous national meetings, often including our education and human services partners, in order to inform policymakers on WIOA implementation issues and practices. To develop
these comments, we drew on the insights of NASWA members at these meetings and at a specially-called November teleconference that focused on the Commission’s questions.

Over 40 members of four NASWA Committees (Employment & Training, Labor Market Information, Unemployment Insurance, and Technology) participated in the November teleconference to develop these recommendations.
