People: Much-Deserved Award For John Merrow

image from learningmatters.tvBig, completely sincere congratulations to John Merrow, the longtime education journalist who's just been named a winner of the Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Prize in Education. The annual award honors "outstanding individuals who have dedicated themselves to improving education in this country and whose accomplishments are making a difference today." He's been the PBS NewsHour's main education correspondent for years now, produced a number of major education documentaries, created and grown his own independent production company, helped with the development of the Education Writers Association, and along the way turned himself into a thoughtful commentator.  (He's also been incredibly supportive and helpful to me and many other education journalists along the way.)   We should all be so lucky to have such a career.  Here's the announcement from the NewsHour:Education Correspondent John Merrow Wins McGraw Prize
