Mine the Gap: Working with Data on Access to Opportunities
67 minutes

How equitable is education in your school districts? Do low-income and minority students have the same access to advanced math and science classes, or Advanced Placement courses? Are teachers in low-income schools veterans or new teachers?

ProPublica took data from the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights and massaged it into a usable database. In this webinar, Jennifer LaFleur of ProPublica walks reporters through how to use the site’s Opportunity Gap database as a springboard for stories. Holly Hacker of the Dallas Morning News also gives tips on additional databases reporters can use to examine opportunity gaps in their districts.
