Blog: The Educated Reporter

My colleagues at EWA have launched a new website,, devoted to tracking stimulus spending on education and helping journalists and the public make sense of the issue. Eventually the site will offer lots of searchable data on spending in individual schools and districts. Until then you will find helpful links and posts on the latest in how the money is being used.

If you are a journalist, research or policy analyst who has looked into the effects of stimulus money in education, please use the site to link to your stories and posts. If you are an educator or student who has experienced change in your schools because of stimulus spending, please tell us about it. If you are a concerned citizen with doubts or questions about how the money is being spent—or not—in your local school district, please weigh in.
