The PEN NewsBlast e-newsletter that covered local education reform issues until its parent organization closed its doors late last year will continue publishing with new foundation funding.

The Public Education Network, which published the newsletter for about eight years as a news resource for members at local education foundations, closed its national office in December, citing economic challenges.

The Barr Foundation provided funding for the renamed Public Education NewsBlast, and the Los Angeles Education Partnership, an original member of the PEN network, will continue to produce the newsletter, the group announced last week.
