I discovered The Hechinger Report today. A product of Columbia Teachers' College and the Hechinger Institute on Education and Media, the site does in-depth reporting on educational news and trends.
A combination of articles, blogs, in-depth reports, opinion and analysis, THR believes "Fewer and fewer reporters at the nation’s largest newspapers and wire services are covering national education issues full time. As a result, critical issues do not get the attention they deserve." They aim to fill the gap.
They caught my eye with this article on the current round of teaching-bashing in the main stream media.
