Education Writer Wins Pulitzer For Exposing Community College Corruption

| 1 Comment
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.

Thanks for mentioning the Hechinger fellowship for reporting on community colleges. The deadline is April 30 and we've had many applications. There's still time to get an application in, however. Questions? Call Matt Bruderle, 212 870 1071. rlc
