Estonia uses insight from Open Data to answer questions around education
Spotted on the Estonian Open Data Portal opendata.riik.ee:
"In this "Open Data and Data Journalism" blog post will look more closely at educational issues. The school year is about to begin, and we will explore how popular private schools are. Here we look at the Estonian five-year trend and also zoom in at the last school year.
