What I liked:

  • The chart is focused on the most recent data
  • Categorized by Gender and Grade of teacher for differentiation
  • Bar chart makes it easy to identify differences in salary
  • Sorted

What I disliked:

  • Too many colours
  • Grid lines
  • Legend is very confusing
  • Unnecessary axis
