Hechinger Report Launches Data Blog
Hechinger Report Launches Data Blog

April 2013

The Hechinger Report has unveiled a new “Education by the Numbers” blog, aimed at journalists and researchers, that will “seek to answer the question of when (and whether) data can improve education.”

Blog creator Jill Barshay writes:

“I plan to list and summarize which data sets and studies are available on certain education topics as a resource for journalists and other lay people. I’d like to write about interesting people who are crunching education data. And I will write about new data studies or stories about the use of data. At times, I will try my own hand at some data analysis and graphs.

“Most of all, my aim is to become educated enough about education data to develop ideas for data projects. I’m convinced the way to become a new-fangled data journalist is to start getting messy with numbers.”
