Elementary, Middle, and High Schools have a Higher Proportion of Instructional Employees than Colleges and Universities



The way we manage our public schools has become a hot button issue because of rising costs. One of the largest concerns is that there are too many administrators and not enough teachers, especially in colleges and universities. The visualization below shows how many teachers and other employees there are at our nations public schools, colleges, and universities.


Data Notes

The data for this visualization comes from 2014 Annual Survey of Public Employment and Payroll which is conducted by the US Census Bureau. The data is only representative of public schools since this data source does not acquire data from private schools. Once I downloaded the data, I organized it in excel and created the visualization in Tableau.
