On the Records: Mapping Texas Education

We've created three new maps for visualizing district-level demographics in Texas schools.

This map of Texas school districts visualizes the percentage of students rated by the state as economically disadvantaged.

Among the education data collected by Houston nonprofit Children at Risk is a snapshot of each district's demographics and academic performance during the 2008-09 school year.

You can view campus-specific information in our database, but we've also sought to visualize the data at the district level using mapping software. 

Here's a district-by-district look at the percentage of students who are "economically disadvantaged," as defined by the state: 

Here's a map of districts by their student-to-teacher ratios: 

And, finally, here's a look at districts by the percentage of students defined as having limited English proficiency
