Napolitano Choice Fuels Criticism Over UC System’s Selection Process

Judges’ Comments

Loved the quick survey on the college recruiters. That’s a smart idea. The feature on using technology to fight cheating in online classes was also strong. Good overall mix.”

“Great variety of stories and strong reporting and writing. They had depth and strong sources, and the voices of those most affected by them. The story on attempting to prevent cheating on online courses was a standout, as was the piece about recruiters passing over high schools in low-income communities. These are things readers really care about and should know. Also liked the look at the UC System’s closed selection process for president.”

EWA is grateful to the College Board for its generous support of the 2016 National Awards for Education Reporting.
