The Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) API is a brainchild of the U.S. Department of Education that allows users to track and gather data concerning the progress of education and civil rights in public schools. It allows developers to build apps that provide access to a variety of parameters including student enrollment, chronic absenteeism, and out-of-school suspension in public schools. Developers seeking to access the API must sign up for API keys through a Github-anchored link provided in the documentation.
Twenty-two APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Genetics, Education, Passwords, Identity, Video, and Music. One highlight today is the IEX Trading API for creating stock trading applications. Here's a rundown of the latest additions for developers.
