The First 20 — What a Reporter Is Learning By Visiting 100 Louisville Schools

“As a reporter who covers Jefferson County Public Schools full time, I am charged with writing about the big stuff, like how the district funds its $1 billion budget and how hard it is for some students to get into highly desirable schools,” writes Antoinette Konz of WDRB.

“But it’s also my job to get to the stories that might otherwise go unnoticed – and despite how connected we are with social media – sometimes you just need to show up.

On Dec. 1, I made a commitment to visit 100 Schools in 100 Days – a chance to sit in classrooms, visit with students and school staff and see what is going on inside JCPS.”
