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 bmaddox@gpee.org.



WHY I LOVE NEWSPAPERS
