Chalkbeat is the nonprofit news organization covering one of America’s most important stories: the effort to improve schools for all children, especially those who have historically lacked access to a high-quality education. In this project, Chalkbeat will work to improve and deepen engagement with communities throughout the U.S., and to share learnings about how best to engage low-income and underserved families in conversations about education. This work will support the Hewlett Foundation’s strategy of learning what communities care about and want from their education systems and the ways in which institutions such as the Hewlett Foundation can best engage them.
