Education Week Video to Partner With the PBS NewsHour

Education Week is pleased to announce a content partnership with the PBS NewsHour to bring more in-depth coverage of the nation’s schools to public television, following Education Week’s acquisition last month of Learning Matters TV. In the first year, Education Week will produce at least 12 segments for the award-winning news program with the goal of raising the level of understanding and informed discourse around critical issues facing education, from the early years through higher education.

As established and trusted nonprofit news organizations, both Education Week and the PBS NewsHour have built their reputations on a history of intelligent reporting and compelling storytelling. Education Week’s acquisition of Learning Matters TV, the New York City-based television production company founded by John Merrow, allows the opportunity to expand EdWeek’s existing video storytelling and move into broadcast-quality coverage of education.
