The 2007 Pulitzers are out, and in the category of investigative reporting Brett Blackledge of the Birmingham News wins for his work on community college corruption (Lawmaker paid by 2 schools for the same work
, Two-Year College Corruption
) that "exposed cronyism and corruption in the state's two-year college system, resulting in the dismissal of the chancellor and other corrective action." (see here
). Congratulations, Brett. Maybe that will help drum up reporters to be Hechinger Fellows
and write about community colleges during the upcoming year.
