The dailies may be cutting back, but education coverage is all the rage online it seems. Here's a slew of recent stories from the Chi-Town Daily News, which includes two written by former WBEZ education reporter Jay Field:
Members of the public will have their say tomorrow on how
successful Chicago has been at integrating its schools. CPS has long
maintained that its student assignment policies have met the court’s
demands, and is asking for an end to judicial oversight.
As Barack Obama took the oath of office, the cafeteria at troubled
Harper High in Englewood fell silent.
When 13-year-old Michael Waller of the Sacred Heart Schools walked into
the recording studio, he knew it would be no ordinary day in music
Singer/songwriter Sheryl Crow will take the stage for the first
performance in the private school's new space. A $5 million donation
funded the renovations, which will allow the entire student body to
meet under one roof.
What do you think about CTDN's coverage of education, compared to WBEZ or Catalyst or the dailies? Me, I'm just grateful that there's any coverage at all.
