Looking Ahead: The Big Education Stories of 2013

When it comes to public education, 2013 is likely to be a year of new thinking, from innovative approaches to classroom technology to a potentially game-changing decision by the Supreme Court on affirmative action.

States and school districts will continue to struggle with the recession’s fiscal fallout, even as demands for more programs and services — including science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) initiatives, extended learning time and early childhood education — increase.

I’ve put together a list of ten education stories to watch for in 2013, including school safety, affirmative action, Common Core State Standards, and affordability and access in higher education. You can find the complete roundup over at The Atlantic.

On Monday, I’ll have the Top 10 most popular Educated Reporter posts of 2012, so be sure to check back then.
