Understanding Colorado’s students through maps

The Colorado Sun partnered with Keystone Policy Center to create a series of maps exploring testing and demographic data for students across the state.

The Colorado Sun obtained data from the Colorado Department of Education. The Keystone Policy Center assisted in cleaning the data. The map was created in consultation with both The Colorado Sun and Keystone Policy Center. The Keystone Policy Center does not have a say in The Colorado Sun’s reporting.
