Learning Curve

MinnPost's education reporting is made possible by a grant from the Bush Foundation.

Learning Curve

Beth Hawkins writes about education in Learning Curve. Hawkins has covered a variety of subjects for MinnPost since its launch in 2007, but has a particular passion for reporting on education. In addition to her conviction that education is one of today's most pressing issues on a policy level, she's motivated by her experience advocating for her two sons in great schools and not-so-great ones.
