Careers at EdWeek

Updated: January 24, 2022

Assistant Managing Editor

The Assistant Managing Editor role for Education Week is a vital position in our news operation as these editors are most directly responsible for planning coverage and guiding our reporting efforts. At the same time, these editors sit at the forefront of our strategic imperative to develop deep expertise in the audience communities we serve. In our newsroom, each Assistant Managing Editor is responsible for supervising 2-4 reporters while also acting as our resident expert on one of the five main audience groups we serve (school district leaders, principals, teachers, policy and industry leaders, and higher education professionals) for the purpose of guiding all newsroom efforts to provide news and information to that audience group.

We are a mission-driven news organization — one of the first non-profit newsrooms — with a tradition of excellence and a passion for serving the K-12 education field. We’re looking for an editor who understands K-12 education and can articulate a vision for coverage on a range of topics that is fresh, insightful, and highly relevant to the K-12 professional audience.

Specifically, the Assistant Managing Editor will lead a highly motivated team of reporters covering some of the most vital and dynamic issues in the field: the teaching profession, curriculum and instruction, and how factors such as race, disabilities, and being a non-native speaker of English impact opportunities for students and influence educators at the school and classroom levels.

Education Week is at an exciting point in its history, a time of transition and opportunity. We have made recent major investments in our digital operations through a strategic redesign of edweek.org, a major technology upgrade that includes a new CMS, a robust use of Metrics for News analytics to expand and deepen our audience relationships, and exciting brand work. This Assistant Managing Editor will join a seasoned and energetic editing team that is poised to embrace a newsroom-wide advance editorial planning process and sharpen our journalism to grow our audience and raise the profile of our expertise. We’re looking for an editorial leader who is comfortable with change and can provide a compassionate and steady leadership hand to their team members.

At Education Week, we believe that our nation’s historic racism against Black people and other people of color has deeply influenced public education in a range of ways, from a patchwork funding system that sustains inequity of resources to echoing and perpetuating cultural and racial biases in classrooms and curricula. Highlighting these impacts has long been a core tenet of our mission and we recognize that to properly serve that mission our organization must understand these influences much more deeply. In addition, our editors have often served as conduits for future EdWeek employees, and we are eager to expand our in-house networks to a wider, more diverse sphere of journalism. With those things in mind, we strongly encourage applications from journalists who are members of traditionally underrepresented communities.

Applicants, please respond by Jan. 10, 2022.

Editorial Projects in Education Inc. (EPE) is pleased to present the Education Week Gregory M. Chronister Journalism Fellowship, to be awarded annually to an enterprising journalist in support of a reporting project that illuminates a significant issue in pre-K-12 education.

The fellowship is meant to honor and reflect the now-retired Gregory M. Chronister, who helped lead Education Week as executive editor for 11 years, and as managing editor, associate editor, and Commentary editor for 21 years before that. Greg was known for his commitment to producing balanced, thorough, high-quality reporting that could improve American education, and for his keen eye on journalistic detail and big-picture context.

The kindness and humanity that Greg showed his colleagues in the workplace have deeply informed Education Week’s journalism, which combines independent, incisive coverage with a belief in the critical importance of a civil discourse around highly contested issues of pre-K-12 policy and practice.

The Education Week Gregory M. Chronister Journalism Fellowship is taking a hiatus this year. Please check back in early 2022 for information on the fellowship.
