You Can't Improve a Closed School: Infographic Series on Mass School Closures

Schott Foundation
Feb 2014

In May 2013, the Schott Foundation's OTL Campaign launched a series of infographics exposing the harmful effects of mass school closures, including the disparate impact they have on underserved students, the common myths used to justify closures, the cycle of disinvestment that mass school closures contribute to, and finally, the positive alternatives that can actually improve education systems. These graphics help advocates in identifying the problem, analyzing the causes, and proposing solutions.
