EWA History

Benjamin Fine of the New York Times, one of EWA's founders and its first president, center, covers the racial integration of schools in Little Rock, Ark., in September 1957. "Mobs don't like reporters. At least, the Little Rock mobs didn't," Fine wrote in an account of his experience published in the Fall 1957 edition of EWA's quarterly newsletter, The Education Beat.

For 60 years, EWA has given education reporters the support they need to get their work done well.

Today, EWA is meeting the demands of the changing news industry by expanding seminars and data bootcamps, providing direct coaching to reporters, reaching out to new media and ethnic reporters and using new technologies in our work.
