Chalkbeat: Building Better Schools

Filed under Journalism

Nonprofit news organization Chalkbeat is dedicated to covering one of the most important and eduring stories in America: ongoing efforts to improve schools for all children—especially those groups of children who have historically lacked access to quality education.

With bureaus in five locations—Colorado, Detroit, New York, Indiana, and Tennessee—Chalkbeat's reporting is rooted in the belief that education is fundamentally a local issue.

In its series Building Better Schools, Chalkbeat follows ongoing efforts to better struggling schools, from turnaround success stories to lessons learned from failure. Start reading.
