Education: Developers

In effort to better foster innovation and facilitate access to education data, the U.S. Department of Education hosts data on the Data.Gov platform in both machine readable and human readable formats.

Below you will find resources to help you get started, as well as common data resources in “developer-friendly”, machine readable format.

For documentation and sample code on how to use the application programming interfaces, please see the Socrata Developer Site and the SODA API examples.
