This School Hardship Index Map identifies which among the 44,751 public elementary and secondary schools in the country are in need of resources. The index consists of seven variables: remoteness, percentage of students receiving conditional cash transfers, water access, internet access, electricity access, student-teacher ratio, and student-classroom ratio.
