Teacher Distribution & College Readiness by Dallas ISD High School

The following chart, an expansion of an earlier chart, shows various general patterns within DISD relating to college readiness scores by school and the allocation of teacher time for each student. It also includes the AEIS (Academic Excellence Indicator System) rating for each school for the past 3 years.
DISD Teacher time allocated by student and by school in 2012-12 budget and the SAT/ACT achievements of those schools in 2010, the most recent year for which such data is on the DISD web site.
(Right-click on the above chart and "open link" to enlarge it and/or print it onto one page.)
I do not yet know what, if any, conclusions can be made from the above beyond the need for more improvement in college readiness among all DISD students. The allocation of teacher time & talent is a critical variable in achieving that goal.
