Education, Health and Services in NYC School Districts*
The Coalition for Educational Justice (CEJ), with assistance from Brown University’s Annenberg Institute for School Reform, seeks to end inequalities in NYC public schools. SAVI performed extensive research on a number of education indicators as well as health and demographic information for selected school districts. Maps were created that highlighted problem schools, test results, after school programs, graduation rates, poverty, health, and more. These maps allowed CEJ to engage with community members regarding the state of their school district compared to other areas in the city.
