Media: Nonprofit News Outlet Focuses On NOLA Charters

image from thelensnola.orgI had the chance to meet Jessica Williams, education reporter for The Lens a few days ago.  It's a nonprofit investigative online news site, with funding from Knight and other foundations.  Education-wise, its focus has been 45 charter networks, which dominate New Orleans (see here).  Williams says the site spends a lot of time covering charter board meetings (yes, charters have boards -- one in Chicago just voted to oust its executive director).  The goal is to dive deeper and cover more than traditional news outlets can.  Watch out, mainstream newspapers and media outlets.  The nonprofits are coming (and going).  @thelensNOLA
