Education Reporter
Honolulu Civil Beat

Honolulu Civil Beat is looking for an insightful, incisive and experienced education reporter to write about core problems in Hawaii’s K-12 and higher education systems.

We’re seeking someone with a deep understanding of education policy who can zero in on difficult issues with an eye toward innovative solutions that might improve education in the islands. On a practical level, effective investigative reporting and deft writing will be crucial to this work. (We’re not looking for a typical schools “beat” reporter.)

Our ideal candidate will have a proven record of success on investigative education-related projects and shorter watchdog enterprise coverage. Excellent analytical skills and writing with voice are essential. Data journalism skills and previous knowledge of Hawaii are a plus.

If you’re interested, please drop a resume, clips and cover-email by Jan. 31 to Editor Patti Epler at
