Last fall, we launched TrustED to provide school leaders and educators the important news and information they need to solve the toughest K–12 education challenges.
As Executive Editor Corey Murray wrote in our very first post:
“Our goal is simple: to help you quickly find information and inspiration, so that you can get back to doing what you do best: providing quality, sometimes hard-fought educational experiences for students and families. Our editors scour the planet daily for big ideas, best practices, and spirited debate—and we bring it all together for you here.”
One year later, we’re proud of what we’ve achieved. With the help of our loyal audience, we’ve covered topics and events as far reaching as presidential elections, natural disaster recovery, personalized learning, school choice, bullying and safety, school leadership, and equity and diversity. And, that’s only some of the topics we’ve covered.
We’ve also been fortunate to work with some of America’s leading education voices, including Angela Maiers, Eric Sheninger, and Dr. Philip Lanoue. We plan to expand our list of regular contributors in our second year.
