Education Writers Give, Take Lessons At Conference

I’ve been in Nashville this week, at the annual conference of the Education Writers Association on the tree-lined campus of Vanderbilt University.

Every national story on education you’ve read this year – those writers are all here (very humbling).

Thoughtful conversations are everywhere, along with urgings to look at issues through a real-world lens, delve deeper to ask better questions and follow the data to see what’s really happening.

In other words, it’s been a Common Core lesson for journalists.
