Editorial Projects In Education
For Deeper-learning Related Coverage In Text, Webinars And Other Social Media
The nonprofit Editorial Projects in Education, primarily through its flagship publication, Education Week, has long pursued stories about the shortcomings in curricula, assessment, and teacher preparation that deprive children, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, of the sound education they need to succeed in college and the workplace. Its reporters and editors have produced stories illuminating promising models and successful practices that dig beneath the superficial K-12 experience. To build on that work, EdWeek proposes to produce twenty-five pages of related coverage in Education Week over the next twelve months, as well as to leverage its digital and "live events" platforms, including edweek.org, electronic newsletters, webinars, and social-media functionality, to further highlight efforts to encourage deeper learning.
