Now That's What I'm Talking About

This is something that would help the education beat tremendously -- but no one seems to want to do yet despite my repeated entreaties (aka offers) to do it: a site that tracks and dissects media coverage on a certain beat every day.

As Slate's Jack Shafer explains, the Knight Science Journalism Tracker "sifts the Web for the day's newsiest science stories, summarizes the topic, and assesses the work of one or two of the reporters before linking to the other takes on the story...making it easy for reporters and editors to read and judge the competition." No one does this regularly, or thoroughly enough on the education beat -- not EWA, not Hechinger, and not me (though I'm willing).
