If you’re hosting or attending an event in your local education community, let Chalkbeat know! We’ll help you spread the word.
Chalkbeat is an innovative new model for local journalism about a topic that matters — education in poor communities. Right now Chalkbeat works in seven cities, with reporters on the ground producing daily coverage of education. We want your help picking our next community!
For Chalkbeat to tell the story of education in America, we need folks like you — teachers, parents, students, and curious citizens — to help inform our reporting.
We welcome and encourage you to republish our content.
In addition to building a business model that bolsters our independence, we have adopted a code of ethics to govern the conduct of our team members and those we work with.
Chalkbeat is grateful for the support of our diverse community of donors.

As Chalkbeat embarks on our strategic plan for 2025, we recognized the need for a new visual identity that reflects who Chalkbeat is now.
