New: ProPublica Vs. Sitegeist
Check out ProPublica's new, improved Opportunity Gap tool, which lets you find out different schools' achievement gaps and other things. The new version includes info on a school's Advanced Placement exam passing rates and sports participation, and can be viewed via Foursquare. Want something more mobile (if not necessarily more granular)? Try the Sunlight Foundation's Sitegeist, which will tell you the demographics of the neighborhood you're in. Then come back and tell me which is better, or if there's something else that's best of all.
