About the Entry
In her coverage of Portland Public Schools, Bethany Barnes dug deep into the district’s policies and practices related to “problem” teachers, scrutinized school safety measures, and shadowed an often-contentious search for a new superintendent.
Comments from the Judges
“Her work on the new superintendent search, especially traveling to Atlanta with the school board, is exactly what beat reporters should do.”
“This collection of stories showcases the range of the reporter and the depth of education reporting that is being provided to this community.”
