This map shows Chicago Public Schools in relation to Chicago Public Libraries. Obviously there are more schools in comparison to libraries, but does student’s access to libraries and their resources affect the school’s average ACT score, graduation rate or college enrollment rate? Many schools also have a higher population than others. Does that play a role in students having access to resources in the classroom? If so, does access to a library and its resources play a role in student success? The map along with the data provided by the city of Chicago’s online data portal
shows how school’s with dense population’s compare to schools in less populated areas. It is also important to note the different types of schools and the grades they offer.
