#166 Reporting on Poverty and School Achievement


Reporting on Poverty and School Achievement

Tim Broderick, Daily Herald news art editor, and WBEZ reporter Linda Lutton will discuss their reporting and analysis on the link between poverty and school achievement in Illinois.

Tim will discuss creating an index of Illinois schools (open source on GitHub!)based upon the percentage of low income students each school serves.

Linda Lutton will talk about working with the data and how curiosity combined with a deep knowledge of the education beat can lead to a wealth of new information for the public.
