About the Entry

Oregon educators view childhood trauma as a major reason that many students struggle in school and, too often, leave before earning a diploma.

Comments from the Judges

“Manning’s reporting is thorough and measured.”

“Solid reporting and it’s a unique framework of following kids through so many years of school. Amazing interviews with the kids. This must be the kind of access journalists can gain after committing time to sources.”

“In the two stories featuring kids … (Manning’s) warm and trusted relationship really shines and he gets some remarkable access and insight into these two boys and their family situations.”
