Come to EWA’s data bootcamp.
October 15 is the deadline to apply for EWA’s Education Research and Statistics Bootcamp, which will be held December 2-5 at Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill. You bring the numbers, and the assembled gurus will help you crunch them. Journalists always come away from this seminar with great energy and—even better—tangible, project-ready work. Applicants are encouraged, though not required, to propose work related to stimulus spending.
