Home | Robert Azeem Jackson III

I am here because of the love of my family and the opportunities that I had access to due to great public schools.
I intend to pay forward the blessing I received and pour myself into the work of building a more equitable education system. At any given time I will describe myself as a project manager, a data scientist, or a movement scientist. These titles are just shorthands that fit on name tags.

“The nature of the criminal justice system has changed. It is no longer primarily concerned with the prevention and punishment of crime, but rather with the management and control of the dispossessed.” – Michelle Alexander

I’m still constantly in motion in my body but once I’m somewhere I am planted and present. I tend to that project, meeting, person, idea until it’s it time to move and then I do so with grace.

“Been workin since since 12, blessed to know dignity in my practices from a young age, it makes my journey hard to hold all at once so take your time and ask questions”

So What Does Rob Do?

Here are a few of the hats I wear.

Data Stewardship + Podcast Producer: I write and speak publicly on algorithmic bias, and the potential positive impact of big data & analytics in public work. I advocate for community-center tech solutions. I also produce my own podcast(s), where I explore the topics like race, activism, self discovery and on agency; all in one night of amazing food and laughs. Contact me for details>

Digital Literacy + Service Leadership in Action: I believe that systems are meant to be simplified, mastered, and eventually augmented by those most impacted. I’m privileged to know enough to teach and humbled to facilitate the growth of all learners (kid & adult) who want to see the digital world as a platform for terraforming their own visions and voices.

Data Science + User Experience researcher: I have designed digital survey, dashboards, and other analytics based solutions for local and state governments with an emphasis on supporting tech-novices & Sr. leadership.

Data Analysis + Racial Equity Lens: I have a background in regression analysis and various other forms of multi-level statistical analysis. I approach all social science research (qualitative and quant.) with a racial equity lens/disparity analysis.

Tech Project Management: As an educator turned technologist and consultant I’ve mastered the skill of providing my audience with the impactful information needed to make bespoke tech solutions.

What is the Cypher Project?

I want to change how we Design School Services with inclusive special education design as the center. The journey exceeds me alone but here where I’ve been building momentum:

  • Improving attract retain retrain expand.
