Panorama Education, a startup that provides surveys and analytics based on feedback from parents, students, and teachers, announced last week that it raised $4 million in seed funding through an initiative sponsored in part by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

The Cambridge, Mass.-based education company creates and analyzes surveys for K-12 schools, using information from the community to help solve targeted problems, such as bullying.

With the influx of cash, the company plans to expand and to launch a free tool for individual teachers. The money comes from groups including Mr. Zuckerberg's Startup: Education, uber-investor Jeff Clavier's SoftTech VC, and actor Ashton Kutcher's A-Grade Investments.
