Rising college tuition continues to be one of the most important stories that education journalists cover. But fact-checking exactly what price a college charges can be surprisingly difficult. At many schools, for example, almost no students pay the “sticker price” posted on the website.
Do you have fewer than two years experience covering education? Could you use some extra support and guidance from a veteran of the education beat (and from EWA)?
Apply to join New to the Beat, one of EWA’s most popular programs. We will pair you up with a skilled mentor who is an experienced education journalist. And we’ll kick things off with a free, two-day workshop on Oct. 27-28 in Baltimore.
Education and the American Dream: Pathways From High School to College and Careers
Northwestern University • November 14-15, 2019
What will it take to make the U.S. education system a more powerful engine for economic mobility? What are the obstacles, especially for low-income families and students of color?
At this journalists-only seminar on Nov. 14-15 in Chicago, we will explore these and other questions, with a special focus on emerging efforts to create stronger pathways from high school to college and promising careers.
