Text version for screen readers:

Dear Reader,

I’m Liz Willen, editor in chief of The Hechinger Report.

[Headshot of author]

I’m writing to introduce myself and give you a little background on The Hechinger Report, a nonprofit news organization focused on inequality and innovation in education. Since 2010, we’ve been taking readers inside classrooms and on to campuses, explaining and exploring the critical education issues you care about most.

Today, this need is clearer than ever.

As editor in chief, I lead our committed team of journalists in writing about education without bias or jargon. I work closely with executive editor, Sarah Garland, who manages our media partnerships and editorial direction. I also raise money to cover our costs so we can focus on the stories that matter most and will make a real difference.

Of course, my main purpose is to serve and inform readers.

I hope you enjoy receiving our newsletters and are taking advantage of other ways to engage with us. It all starts with our website, where we post stories and investigations daily. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Once you see the value of this service, I hope you will consider making a donation to support the work we do. That’s how we make this all work.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to reply to this email.

Thank you,
Liz Willen
The Hechinger Report
