Exploring the Geography & Schools in NYC boroughs from 1996 to 2012
The NYC school system is the largest in the U.S. and probably the largest in the world. The Research Alliance for New York City Schools conducts rigorous studies on topics that matter to the city’s public schools. Their recent studies of school systems often work in percentages, or discuss an analysis based on a small subset of students in NYC schools. This can make it easy to lose sight of the scale and scope of their research. They worked with NYU Stern students in data visualization course to “put their work in context” to illustrate to their diverse audience (teachers, parents, students, educators, other school systems, researchers, and policy makers). The project featured here presents a geographical display to explore the changes in the density of NYC schools over time.
