Description:

Do you know IDEA from ESSA, the Star Report from the Heckman Equation? Do you want to move beyond toxicity in news? Are you insatiably curious about the different factors that shape the experience of childhood in America today?

If so, we want you to join us as a Reporter on our dynamic Education Lab team. Now in its six year, this community-funded project takes a solutions journalism approach to public education coverage.

We want you to use investigative skills to illuminate problems and find the most promising solutions – then turn those findings into lively copy and other forms of storytelling. These stories might be outside our region, so we’ll send you there. We want you to use empathy to bring new voices to our coverage, to consider engagement and human connection as you work.

Successful candidates will have experience covering early-education programs, K-12 schools and colleges, and a strong understanding of education trends, policies and challenges at the state, local and federal level. We’re particularly interested in data skills and strong facility with school finance systems. We can’t wait to find you.
