Comments from the Judges
“Fascinating, insightful reporting that explores the ongoing philosophical debate over the soul of American education.”
“The stories examined the big-picture issues of the profit motive of technology companies and what students should be learning, and combined that with on-the-ground reporting that brought to life how Google is shaping how students learn.”
