Meet the Author

EDUCATION WEEK has been the newspaper of record for preK-12 education for over 25 years. Covering education-related news, policy, and new research and practice, this weekly publication has over 200,000 readers. Its online component, EdWeek.org, serves up nearly 2 million "page views" to about 300,000 unique visitors per every month, and more than 900,000 people have registered to use the site. Education Week is the flagship publication of Editorial Projects in Education (EPE), a nonprofit organization whose primary mission is to help raise the level of awareness and understanding of important issues in American education. EPE first gained prominence for launching The Chronicle of Higher Education (later sold to its editors) which is the newspaper of record for higher education. Currently, EPE also publishes the online monthly Teacher Magazine, annual reports on education quality, and a job web site for educators called "Agent K-12."
