Patience Jones (NCCU, Psychology and Elementary Education) joined Duke students Allyson Ashekun (PubPol), Drew Greene (PubPol), and Rhea Tejwani (CS/Econ) in a ten-week curation of data meant to assist decision-makers within Durham Public Schools. Using data from the Durham Compass and the NC School Report Card among many other sources, the team produced an interactive R Shiny dashboard that permits exploration of school statistical and geospatial data. This was a continuation of a joint Duke-NCCU Bass Connections project (https://bassconnections.duke.edu/about/news/how-duke-and-nc-central-university-are-inthistogether-support-durham-schools).
