Best on the Beat: Chalkbeat’s Erin Einhorn
EWA Radio: Episode 126
Chalkbeat Detroit reporter Erin Einhorn won an EWA award this spring for outstanding beat reporting. Her enterprising coverage included stories about the impact on communities when neighborhood schools are slated for closure, unconventional methods of filling Head Start staffing vacancies, and how many families struggle to find educational options for their children that are safe, high quality, and — just as importantly — accessible. Hear her remarks this month at the EWA National Seminar, where she accepted the Moskowitz Prize for Outstanding Beat Reporting, followed by her conversation on EWA Radio last spring. In that episode, she discussed the challenges and opportunities of covering education in the Motor City.
