Student Dispersion

Data Driven Detroit (D3)   (Detroit)

September 2012

With school closings, specialized school openings, and inconsistent transportation, students in Detroit Public Schools often find themselves attending school far from home. To better understand this issue, Data Driven Detroit has published over one thousand new maps. Detroit Public Schools shared data on where all their 2011-2012 students live and go to school. D3 mapped the data to tell three kinds of stories...

where students who live in a given community go to school
where students live who attend a given school
where students live who attend all schools in a given community
