  1. Just FYI, the Education Writers Association provides an annual intensive three-day bootcamp for reporters to learn about education research and statistics, the terminology, uses and misuses of statistics, causation v. correlation, among other issues. The 20 reporters who have to compete to get into the bootcamp come out (we hope) with a better understanding of how to gauge the plethora of education research reports that comes across their desks or across their editors’ wires.

  2. It should also be up to the reader to determine the validity of the essay and the research included within it. So read cautiously.
