Education media symposium set Jan. 9
News stories about schools and children are often the most important and most read in community newspapers.
Though coverage may be focused on a county or city board of education, that's where state and national issues show up on the local level, and that's when it's important to have some understanding about things like the Common Core curriculum and Georgia's complex school-funding formulas.
The Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education has a free media symposium planned for early January for newspaper reporters and editors at which these issues and more will be explored. The event is planned from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Jan. 9 at the offices of Georgia Public Broadcasting.
Reserve a spot at the symposium by emailing Bill Maddox, communications director of the Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education, at email@example.com.
WHY I LOVE NEWSPAPERS
The Georgia Press Association is beginning a column-writing campaign to bolster the successes and the importance of our newspapers by well-known Georgians and newspaper men and women like you. Please feel free to use these columns in your newspaper to show your community what a great job you and your fellow GPA members are doing. And by all means, if you feel compelled to write a column to share in the effort, please send it to us. If you have any questions, give us a call at 770-454-6776.
