Media: Snapshot Of Education Journalism Changes
There are some great people covering national education news these days, both veterans (Stephanie Banchero, Greg Toppo) and relative newbies (Stephanie Simon, Joy Resmovits, Motoko Rich). But as you'll see below there have been lots of changes.
Six years ago I wrote a post about who was covering education news for the various outlets, which generated a slew of corrections and additions and eventually a half-assed 2007 'wiki'. The vast majority of the folks listed -- Ben Feller, Sam Dillon, Nancy Zuckerbrod, Joel Rubin, Lynn Olson, Alex Kingsbury -- are no longer in their positions. Others -- Dana Goldstein, Elizabeth Green, Paul Tough -- were new to the beat or not even yet on the radar.
Despite all the foundation support for education journalism the changes just keep coming.
