EdSource, a California nonprofit organization with the state’s largest team of education reporters, is seeking an enterprising reporter to cover student wellness and school climate, with a secondary focus on alternative discipline strategies. 

A successful candidate will have a proven track record of developing relevant, engaging and data-driven stories and possess multimedia skills. We’re looking for a creative and resourceful reporter with a knack for distilling complex topics and education jargon into clear, compelling features that shed new light on issues and trends across pre-school, K-12 and postsecondary levels.

Reporters will join an influential and growing organization recognized as one of the most authoritative sources of education reporting in a state with the nation’s largest system of public education. Articles are published online, in daily email newsletters, and through partnerships with other news organizations.

Position can be based in Oakland or Los Angeles.
