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!

Retirements are often related to the stock market as well as to retirement incentives offered by governmental employers including school districts. Might be interesting to compare principal retirements in the past few years w/those the last time the market tanked as well as the retirement incentive packages.
