Congratulations to Education Week, Voted Best Education News Site!
Born out of a nonprofit organization called Editorial Projects in Education, Education Week focuses on K-12 education coverage. Under the main umbrella of the Education Week section, the site also hosts specialized sections, including Education Week Digital Directions and Education Week Teacher. Though there is content on the site that requires a paid subscription, there are plenty of informative free articles and blogs that help keep readers informed about education issues and events. A discussion section, which includes an online book club and a multimedia section help to round out the site's offerings.
In addition to its helpful and informative website, Education Week also comes in print format. Education Week publishes several special reports online and in print each year, including 'Quality Counts', an examination of public education improvements at the state level. Other special reports include 'Diplomas Count', a report on graduation rates, and 'Technology Counts', which focuses on education technology.
