Inspired by innovations in sports statistics, the New York Times‘ statistics guru Nate Silver, and all the Gates Foundation talk about the value of school climate surveys, a group of Yale seniors led by North Hollywood High School alumn Aaron Feuer (son of Mike) has developed a relatively cheap, cloud-based software platform called Panorama that can help schools conduct nearly-instant surveys of kids, parents, teachers, and community members — without specialized paper and using pretty much any platform (including mobile phones). Now working in six states, Panorama’s first client was La Cañada Unified School District, and it is now working with LAUSD as well, according to the New Haven Independent: Data Geeks Set Sights On School Reform.
