Media: Another Twist And Turn For The AP Education Team
A brief recap: Four years ago, Libby Quaid was named replacement for Nancy Zuckerbrod (here) as national education reporter in DC.
Two years ago, Quaid left on maternity leave and AP unveiled the "team" education coverage without a single national education reporter based in DC (see details here).
Team coverage didn't work perfectly, and then there was the announcement that Kimberly Hefling was the new national education reporter based in DC (she made a brief appearance on the blog here) followed shortly thereafter by the announcement she was going on maternity leave. (Miami-based Christine Armario is apparently filling in.)
On Thursday, Atlanta-based writer Dorie Turner, part of AP's team coverage of education, announced she's leaving AP for a job at the state department of education. A six year veteran, the energetic Turner is wrapping up her AP career next week and starting her new job in July. As always: congrats, condolences to Turner and her AP workmates.
