“Education is one of the most important parts of our society… People get where they are because of the education they receive… You have this intersection of a lot of different issues in education; you can talk about issues around poverty, race, mental health, funding, politics… there’s so much fodder to dig into.“
Jess Clark joins us this week to tell us about her work as the 2015-17 Fletcher Fellow for Education Policy Reporting through a partnership between the North Carolina Public Radio WUNC and the UNC School of Media and Journalism. The fellowship is dedicated to in-depth reporting on education issues. Tune in to learn about what draws Jess to education reporting and hear her insights into the state of education in North Carolina.
