Teaching: A Profession in Transition
Chicago • October 18-19, 2018

From state capitols to the U.S. Supreme Court, teachers are making headlines. Perennial issues like teacher preparation, compensation, and evaluation continue to be debated while a new wave of teacher activism and growing attention to workforce diversity are providing fresh angles for compelling coverage.

To help reporters make sense of it all, EWA will bring together journalists, educators, and experts for a two-day seminar October 18-19 in Chicago, hosted by the Urban Education Institute at the University of Chicago. Journalists will learn how to find stories in teacher records and personnel data, hear from reporters who have produced groundbreaking coverage, and explore trends that could shape the profession for years to come.

This event is open to EWA journalist members only. More information and an agenda for the event will be available soon.
