Chalkbeat is looking for a passionate, enterprising reporter to join our national reporting team.
Chalkbeat is the nonprofit news organization committed to covering one of America’s most important stories: the effort to improve schools for all children, especially those who have historically lacked access to a quality education. Read more about our mission and values.
We’re currently in five locations — Colorado, Detroit, Indiana, New York, and Tennessee — and we’re about to be in two more, Chicago and Newark. Now, we’re looking for an additional reporter to join our two-person national team to help cover the organizations and ideas that span the country and shape what happens locally.
You’ll be responsible for writing a range of stories at a fast clip. A typical week in your reporting life might include profiling a growing charter school network, breaking news about a national teachers union, and synthesizing local stories about challenges facing refugee students.
