K-12 Education Reporter – PublicSource (Pittsburgh)

PublicSource.org is seeking a reporter to cover K-12 education issues in the Pittsburgh area. The ideal candidate has the ability to produce ongoing and enterprise journalism about the issues, policies and practices that are impacting students and their families in the Pittsburgh area. We are a collaborative newsroom dedicated to facts, excellence, diverse voices and the pursuit of transparency.

The education beat in our region is a critical one. The Pittsburgh school district is well funded when compared to other urban districts of its kind but still struggles with budget deficits, among other concerns. Municipal fragmentation in the area means there are more than 40 other school districts in our county, each with its own unique identity and quirks. Some are within wealthy suburbs; others face severe poverty. These areas are ripe for an enterprising reporter willing to take a closer look.
