An Education Viz Roundup

September was Back-to-School Month on the Tableau Public blog. As students and teachers streamed back into classrooms and hallways across the globe, we took time to consider how data visualization is being applied to the venerable and age-old act of learning.

In this blog, I've selected seven visualizations that show different aspects of education: return on investment, graduation rates, financial aid, new student surveys, enrollment populations, gender statistics, and university rankings. These visualizations were created by different types of Tableau Public authors, from bloggers, to companies, to the schools themselves.

For even more schools and sites that feature education-related visualizations, see the list complied by Cornell here:
