An expert and journalists who cover prison issues will tell you how to evaluate criminal justice "reforms." How can you obtain usable data and find information on a range of cases to interest readers and viewers? And how can you tell your audience whether a fix to the system is effective and protecting the public? We’ll talk about examples across the country, from California's answer to prison crowding to Washington, D.C.'s "second chance" law for youth.
