Mapping Drop Out and Public Health Issues



I'm a fan of maps. If you search "maps" on this blog you'll see many ways I use them to draw attention to inner city poverty, and to draw resources to tutor/mentor programs in all parts of the city.

I found two new reports this week that use maps to illustrate social justice issues, such as the concentration of large high school drop out populations in big city neighborhoods, or lack of public health resources for prisoner re-entry support in inner city neighborhoods.

What is important, is that the neighborhoods in both reports are the same neighborhoods. Thus, why can't we find ways to align our programs, and our resource providers?

These reports are PDFs and the links are posted on the T/MC web site.

Find Cities in Crisis here and find NYC Mapping Health Care as the latest addition here.
