Identifying Hoosier Communities Lacking Highly Rated Schools, Multi-Sector Options
Indiana’s Schooling Deserts uses Geographic Information System (GIS) software to generate drive-time distances to different schooling types to examine the state’s robust K–12 choice environment, under which more than 100,000 families are choosing a school for their children other than one that has been residentially assigned. The maps produced for this report show where families do not have options when it comes to highly rated or non-traditional schooling options and where policymakers and education entrepreneurs might find opportunity to support or grow more high-quality options.
