The revolving schoolhouse door: Principal turnover in Denver, investigated

How Denver struggles to keep its principals in schools and what it’s doing to change.

Comments from the Judges:

“This is good enterprise work that goes in depth on the causes, consequences and potential solutions. The graphics were clear and concise.”

“Lots of good digging into an important issue, impressive data collection and nice use of a data visualization tool. Changing principals every year does in fact seem incredibly destructive.”
