We have bureaus in the following communities: Chicago, Colorado, Detroit, Indiana, New York, Newark, Philadelphia, Tennessee. Plus, a national desk that reports on nation-wide trends and policies.
Nearly half of our readers make spending decisions at their organizations, schools and districts.
These district leaders control budgets that total more than $25 billion. And that’s not including state funding or the budgets of our nonprofit leaders.
Our readers’ primary roles
Chalkbeat’s readers are professionals, insiders, and equity-minded citizens who live at the center of the education conversation. If you’re looking to advertise graduate schools of education enrollment, edtech tools, teacher professional development opportunities, student programming, classroom resources, or reading materials, we can certainly help.
Anecdotally, we have found that our target audience — school leaders, principals and DOE decision-makers — are reading Chalkbeat as a source of news, so it makes sense to advertise with them.— Julie Benns, NYC Outward Bound Schools
