Wondering who’s been covering education stories for the Washington Post along with Valerie Strauss and Jay Mathews ever since Amit Paley left? For now, at least, Michael Alison Chandler (pictured) seems to be filling in. She’s been at the paper since 2005, covering Loudoun County schools for the most part. But lately -- see recent stories about NAEP, performance pay, and NCLB -- she seems to be doing more national work. Click here to read up on Chandler’s most recent stories. I’ll try and find out if it’s a permanent or temporary thing.
UPDATE: The permanent replacement for Paley was just announced today, I’m told, a Fairfax County reporter named Maria Glod. Check out her past work here. I’ll try and dig up a picture.
