Covering education from the inside out.
Holly Korbey's education journalism covers what happens inside classrooms between teachers, students and parents, and works to bridge the gap between research and practice. From how dyslexia is misunderstood and mishandled in classrooms, to how the social-emotional learning trend is reshaping school discipline policies, to how civics is making a comeback after years of decline, Korbey covers the teaching and learning, curriculum and reforms shaping our education system.
She is currently working on her first book, about reviving civics education for the twenty-first century, and speaks to groups of teachers and parents about civic engagement for young people.
“It’s rare to see education reporters incorporate science into their writing so effectively and clearly....Korbey has an ear for strong quotes...The writing is a notch above, and the [interviews of] families and teachers … are insightful.”
