Farewell, From One-Half of the Politics K-12 Team

Eight years after joining Education Week—first as a state policy reporter and then as a federal policy reporter and blogger—I am hanging up my press badge. Starting in mid-May, I'll be the director of assessment and accountability policy at the College Board. It's an exciting opportunity to work for an organization that's having a big impact at a time when the future of accountability and testing is very much in flux.

Still, it's going to be tough to leave Politics K-12 behind. I started this blog more than six years ago as "Campaign K-12", and with Alyson Klein, have built it into a platform that brings EdWeek readers a great mix of breaking news, analysis, watchdog coverage, and the occasional television review. Our success is due in large part to our readers, who have provided us with feedback, perspective, fact-checking, and tips. So thank you.

My last day at EdWeek is Friday. Politics K-12 will be in great hands with Alyson, who will fly solo for a while until a new blogger and federal policy reporter is on board.
