NPR presents a three-week series, "Paying for Our Schools". NPR's Education team, in collaboration with more than 15 Member station reporters, explores how states pay for public education and why the system often hurts America's most vulnerable students.
The series will explore why schools, just miles apart, often have radically different funding levels. Reporting will unpack the difference money can make in a classroom and look at the research, much of it conflicting, around the power and limits of money to improve student performance. And the coverage will spotlight steps states are taking to make sure every student receives a quality education.
Three questions will be considered over the course of the series:
NPR Ed's Cory Turner will create a post that poses the week's question and synthesizes the most compelling moments from that week's relevant station stories. Accompanying Cory's posts will be original art by NPR's L.A. Johnson and data graphics from NPR and EdWeek's research team.
Stories will broadcast across NPR's newsmagazines Morning Edition, All Things Considered, Here & Now, Weekend Edition and Weekend All Things Considered on WITF.
