Fix That Graph – Sources of Revenue

Here’s the scenario.  A local school district has just released its proposed budget for the upcoming two-year period.  Within the 157 page budget document are two pie charts – one for revenues and one for expenditures.  The graphic on the left is the actual pie chart for revenues.

Take a look at the graph and see what you think.  What has been done well?  What would you recommend tweaking?

Of course I have my suggestions – just click here to download my analysis for this pie chart.  The last page of this handout even shows an example of how the finished product might look in a budget document.
