The Notebook hits the airwaves

This article was originally published in The Notebook. In August 2020, The Notebook became Chalkbeat Philadelphia.

As part of the Notebook‘s partnership with WHYY and NewsWorks, reporter Benjamin Herold has begun preparing radio news spots on the District’s Renaissance Schools.

In this piece Herold discusses Mastery-Smedley Elementary, Young Scholars-Douglass, and data about how the Renaissance charters are doing so far.

You can also hear Ben’s first report on the progress so far at Philadelphia’s seven new Renaissance charters throughout the day on WHYY.

We’re thrilled with the opportunity to inform a wider public via a new medium. Thanks to J-Lab and WHYY for making this partnership possible.

The COVID-19 outbreak is changing our daily reality

Chalkbeat is a nonprofit newsroom dedicated to providing the information families and educators need, but this kind of work isn't possible without your help.
