In praise of the New Yorker’s AltSchool story (2016)
NPR’s deeply unbalanced profile of Rocketship Charter Schools (2016)
Some alternatives to the soft, duplicative coverage of this week’s Chan Zuckerberg announcement (2016)
Check them out — it’s a coverage area that we’re all but sure to return to again this year and next. And if you’re curious about the EWA conference, follow along via the #EWA19 hashtag.
