Education Lab is a yearlong project from The Seattle Times and the Solutions Journalism Network. Our objective is to spark meaningful conversations about education solutions in the Pacific Northwest. See updates from the project on the Education Lab blog.
Over the past year, Education Lab has reported on schools making demonstrable improvements to student achievement. Above: Natalie Mace walks eighth-grade student TaQeera Stenson to class at Aki Kurose Middle School in South Seattle. The importance of a consistent relationship with a caring adult was one theme that emerged in several stories.
Education Lab welcomes guest commentaries of 300-500 words. Read our submission guidelines.
