Assignments for Monday

Edited video timeline, due by 8 a.m. Monday: When your timeline is done, please export to Quick Time Movie. The destination will be your folder in Monday NNN in nnnvideos on NewsNet server.

Revised pitch by 8 a.m. Monday, posted on the blog.

Final response paper, by class time, in your Dropbox folder.

Data assignment, due at class time in your Dropbox folder: Nebraska is considering doing away with its income tax. One of the biggest users of state tax money is education, specifically K-12. How much states spend on education is commonly measured by per-pupil spending. The Census Bureau tracks per-pupil spending for primary and secondary schools here and here. Please get data from 2010, 2009 and 2008 and compare Nebraska to the states that have done away with their income taxes. What story would you pitch based on your analysis? I need a one paragraph pitch.
