We’d like to introduce you to a new feature in the Washington Post, The Virginia Schools Insider. With their new on-line format Kevin and Emma plan to mire themselves in the issues facing public education in Virginia. From their introduction:
Welcome to Virginia Schools Insider! We’re thrilled to have a new way to connect with parents, teachers, students and other folks interested in state education news. From our perch in Northern Virginia, we aim to expand upon our coverage in The Post’s dead-tree edition. That means more stories about both local and state school boards and more reports from classrooms across the commonwealth.We’ll look at the role Virginia plays in the national education debate. Its embrace of new technology. Its experimentation with teacher performance pay. Its resistance to charter schools and federal testing standards.
