What’s it like to be an art teacher at a school for kids who love science and math? What happens when a suburban school district allows out-of-district students to enroll? Why are there so many students in this high school’s robotics club? And what might you learn as a coach for a Special Olympics team?
These are just a few of the questions I’ve asked in my rookie year as an education reporter, as I seek to tell the stories of people working in our public school system and unravel some of the complex policies that govern it. I cover the Reynoldsburg school district for the Eastside Messenger community newspaper.
