Access to Education Where You Live (ProPublica) Archives

Using previously unreleased education data from the federal government, ProPublica, a self-described independent, non-profit newsroom producing investigative journalism in the public interest, has created a database including all public schools in districts with more than 3,000 students.

ProPublica analyzed the data to examine whether states provide high-poverty schools equal access to advanced courses and special programs that researchers say will help them later in life.
