Green Eyeshades Award Winner

Posted on Jun 18, 2016

A piece I wrote last year for the Hechinger Report, which is devoted to exposing inequity and innovation in education, has gotten some shine. The story below was recognized by the Society of Professional Journalists as a first-place winner for Public Affairs Reporting / Non-Dailies in its 66th annual Green Eyeshades Awards, given to the best journalism in the Southeastern U.S. Next year will be the 25th anniversary of the Pulitzer I won with my colleagues at NY Newsday. Glad to show this old dog still has some magic in his fingertips.
