The Hechinger Report launched today. The Report is a product of the Hechinger Institute on Education and the Media, an independently funded unit of Teachers College, Columbia University.

Here is how it describes itself:

The Hechinger Report is a nonprofit news organization that is focused on producing in depth education journalism.

Fewer and fewer reporters at the nation’s largest newspapers and wire services are covering national education issues full time. As a result, critical issues do not get the attention they deserve.

The Report fills that gap. Working with in-house and freelance reporters, The Report covers education issues including investigative reporting and detailed analysis. From time to time we’ll also feature opinion from some of the leading thinkers in education.

You’ll find many of these stories in the pages of the nation’s biggest newspapers and websites. You’ll also be able to read all of them at this site.

It looks great…

I’m adding it to The Best Ways To Keep-Up With Current Education Issues.

Thanks to The Educated Reporter for the tip.
