About EPE and Education Week

Editorial Projects in Education, or EPE, a nonprofit corporation based in Bethesda, Md., is best known as the publisher of Education Week. Considered the “must read” news source in U.S. elementary and secondary education, Education Week has focused attention like no other media organization on the challenges and success stories in American schools.

Since its founding in 1981, Education Week has served the nation’s pre-K-12 policymakers, educators, researchers, and other influencers with independent and highly respected journalism, research, data, and community. As the pre-eminent resource in the field, Education Week engages readers with important education news, meaningful analysis, distinctive explanatory and investigative journalism, and outside opinion and commentary across a range of digital, print, and broadcast platforms, as well as through live and virtual events.

Education Week’s flagship website, edweek.org, launched in 1996, has established itself as the go-to online destination for pre-K-12 news and information. Edweek.org showcases Education Week’s own coverage and analysis, provides additional content through partnerships with selected news outlets, and offers links to a wealth of original and curated data and other resources. Edweek.org reaches some 1.6 million registered users who represent the education world’s leaders and stakeholders, including tens of thousands of policymakers and administrators, as well as hundreds of thousands of teachers.

Education Week has also expanded its video-production capabilities, combining its insight into education with visual storytelling that engages its audience in new ways, both on television and online. A partnership with the PBS NewsHour brings Education Week’s distinctive knowledge of the nation’s schools to public TV in frequent stories for the NewsHour’s weekly education segment, “Making the Grade.”

EPE continues to develop new offerings that serve educators and related audiences, such as EdWeek Market Brief, a membership-based digital service that provides news, analysis, and original research on the pre-K-12 market for educational technology and other products and services.
