Why We Invested

The Hechinger Report’s helps the public learn why education and education journalism matters; they shine an intense spotlight on inequities in every story, exposing problems, while seeking out and reporting on solutions. The Hechinger Report has covered early childhood and student parent topics in a mix of reported stories, op-eds and columns. Their coverage on childcare is more important than ever due to the focus COVID-19 has placed on how on children, families, and child care providers have been impacted.
