Dear Reader,

Welcome to Education Week’s bright new look. With today’s edition, we’re introducing a fresh newspaper design that features our new logo, colors, and typeface. We think you’re going to love them.

Throughout the paper, we’ve rethought almost everything to make it as relevant and reader-friendly as possible. You’ll notice that we’ve overhauled the news in brief section in design and function. It’s no longer just a collection of news clips, but a thoughtful guide to interesting information and insights.

Our roundup of academic research has also been sharpened in perspective and presentation. What the Research Says will be a standing feature on Page 5 and will highlight the most compelling findings that academic inquiry has uncovered. We have also combined our policy reporting, previously in its own section called Government & Politics, with the rest of our coverage. We have renamed the Commentary section as well, as we explain on the back page, to reflect the evolution toward a greater array of Opinion content.

The changes we’re sharing are a small part of a larger transformation underway at Education Week. In addition to the bright colors, you’ll notice that at the top of the page we’ve replaced our old slogan “American Education’s Newspaper of Record” with a new statement of ambition that aligns with our mission to the field: “To inspire and empower.”

Education Week has always been a go-to resource for education professionals, policymakers, and influencers. With these changes we’re embracing that role in a new and deeper way. We believe what you believe, that a quality education is possible for every child, and we’re here to support your work toward that mission.

In the spring, we announced a newsroom reorganization that changed reporter and editor assignments to assure that we are connecting with the professional education community we serve, understanding your challenges, providing news and information you need the most. If you’d like to read more, please visit our website www.edweek.org/go/note. And, you can learn more about Education Week’s mission to inspire and empower at edweek.org/go/who-we-are.

Thank you,
Scott Montgomery, Editor-in-Chief
