Today’s fun maps: NYC charter school free lunch rates

Just for fun, here are a few maps of New York City traditional public, special public and public charter schools. Charter schools are indicated with an asterisk. School level rates of children qualifying for free lunch are indicated by circle color.  Deep red circles have free lunch shares over 83.6%. Blue circles have very low free lunch shares. Free lunch shares and school locations (lat / lon) are from the National Center for Education Statistics Common Core – Public School Universe 2007-08. Note that as with my previous NJ charter slides, NYC charter schools tend to serve somewhat lower shares of children qualifying for free lunch than are served by many of the surrounding traditional public schools.
