Closing the achievement gap
The Center for American Progress asked us to translate a report into compelling interactives. The report is about the economic benefits of closing the achievement gap between white students, hispanics, and blacks. We created an animated explainer video and interactive charts that show how pernicious gaps open even before a child’s first day of school.GO TO INTERACTIVE
This project is a companion to the Our future, together project, about the economic contribution of immigrants to the US economy. In the immigration project, we chose a classic, reassuring style; for this project, we used a more abstract style to make a story of race, class, and inequality accessible yet universal.
