Beat: Early childhood education in metro Detroit
Position: This journalist investigates and reports on early childhood education and the lack of a coherent early childhood education policy in metro Detroit. Just one of many problems: Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress showed that of third graders tested in 2018-2019, more than half (54.9%) scored less than proficient in the English language arts test. This reporter digs into this beat and amplifies our reach through a partnership with Chalkbeat. The beat is based at the state-of-the-art One Detroit headquarters in Detroit, co-located at the Detroit Historical Museum.
