MAP ALERT: School Closures, 2003 - Present
As summer approaches, I’ve decide to tackle some big projects - one of which is to look at the effects that school closures have had on the remaining schools in the surrounding area. To get started, I’ve created a map that plots all 111 schools that Chancellor Joel Klein has closed since 2002, including the 19 schools whose fate is still up in the air. Take a look and let me know how you think it can be improved. I’d also love to hear your thoughts on how to best approach this issue!
