For the past few years EMSI has had the pleasure of working with The Alliance for Excellent Education (All4Ed), which is a policy and advocacy organization focused on helping “America’s six million most at-risk secondary school students—those in the lowest achievement quartile—who are most likely to leave school without a diploma or to graduate unprepared for a productive future.” All4Ed is led by Bob Wise, the former governor of West Virginia and author of Raising the Grade: How High School Reform Can Save Our Youth And Our Nation.
All4Ed and NBC News’ Education Nation recently held a competition to create an infographic using the economic impact data from EMSI’s model.
Check out the winning entry, which was created by Jonathan Schwabish and Courtney Griffith. Click here for details.
Honorable mention went to Karl Sluis.
EMSI would also like to extend our congrats to the designers of these visualizations. Good stuff!
