Youth reporters urged to use data in their stories

At a conference in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles, this October, reporters in training from several California youth news sites attended workshops to hone their journalism skills. One Sacramento-based participant recounts a lesson in data-driven storytelling. “[You] must have a trustworthy study to defend your opinions. You may have all the data in world to go with your opinions but if they aren’t very trustworthy, your op-ed could fall apart.” The piece appears on Access Sacramento.
