Blog: The Educated Reporter


While everyone debates what Joel Klein’s resignation means for education, I’d love to talk about what it means for journalism: The leader of the country’s most prominent school system quits and A REPLACEMENT IS PICKED and nobody heard a word?!

I would love to blame this on the talented Jenny Medina leaving for the L.A. bureau, but there are other terrific reporters in New York. I have a feeling it has more to do with a sort of awesome (and scary) degree of discipline within the Bloomberg administration.
