There is a major education problem in South Carolina. According to a 2014 article provided by the American Legislative Exchange Council, which ranks every US state based on student performance in a nationally administered exam, Vermont ranks first and South Carolina last. Enrolling kids in Pre-schools to prepare them to enter grade school is a very important step in the learning process, yet many parents do not enroll their kids in any schooling before Kindergarten. The purpose of this project is to locate different pre-school programs in Greenville, South Carolina, and analyze various factors which could reveal why certain areas of this city experience much lower pre-school enrollment. Factors such as median income by family, population density, city bus routes, and race along with the locations of preschools will be shown on a visual map of Greenville in an attempt to draw conclusions for Pre-K attendance.
