In the past few weeks two longtime education journalists have decided to join the education fray rather than just report on it. Karin Chenoweth of The Washington Post and Fredreka Schouten of Gannett have swapped pen for sword.
The significance of this? They both landed at the liberal and staunchly pro-NCLB Education Trust… Guess you can only watch poor kids get screwed for so long before you want to do something about it! As one, still working, journalist recently remarked to Eduwonk, it gets awfully hard to do the “half one side and half the other side” on some of this stuff.
