The School Funding Gap

Associated Press

Launch Project

As part of the “Divided America” series, The Associated Press wanted to tell the story of the growing divide in school funding between wealthier and poorer districts in the U.S. Seven Mile Media was commissioned to design and develop a data visualization based on an enormous wealth of data collected by the AP research team. The final design, an interactive histogram, displays the funding per pupil and child poverty rate in each district, giving the viewer a unique, information-rich experience.
