Last month was Data Journalism Month over on the Tableau Public site, and we had the pleasure of shining the spotlight on the women and men who tell the world's data stories for their profession. We interviewed Sarah Ryley from the New York Daily News and Claire Miller from the Trinity Mirror in the UK.
We shared our thoughts on how data visualization enhances the news, and we announced a 5 week online course for journalists. We joined journalists at news:rewired, Tapestry and NICAR, and posted some of the training materials we covered.
In this final Data Journalism Month post, we'd like to give you a taste of what data journalists from around the world who use Tableau Public have been up to lately.

Christian McDonald and Beth Cortez-Neavel of the Austin American-Statesman give a sobering look at the history of AISD teacher turnover rates. Readers are able to look at turnover rates for each campus for each of the last 10 years.
In closing, we'd like to express how honored we are as a team to be working with these and all journalists around the world who are seeking to bring clearer insight into current events. They're telling the stories of our time in an engaging and informative way using data, and we admire them for that.
