The Press Democrat

Education Reporter
The Press Democrat, winner of the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for breaking news coverage and one of California’s strongest news organizations, is seeking a reporter to cover education and the wellness of young people in Sonoma County and the surrounding North Coast.  As our education reporter, you would lead coverage of Sonoma County’s K-12 school system, which shapes the future of 70,000 students, as well as the region’s California State University campus and community college, which prepare 30,000 students for life and work in a changing world. Your reporting will play a central role in our watchdog work, ensuring transparency and accountability from public and private schools that together represent one of the region’s largest employers and civic sectors. You also will be responsible for developing stories on cultural, economic, technological and demographic forces that are impacting young people — and the way they and their families are responding to them. This position is based in Santa Rosa, an hour north of San Francisco, where vineyards give way to redwood forests and a scenic coast. The region, home to 650,000 people, is an international destination for tourists and produces some of the best wine and beer on the planet. A thriving tech industry, farm and government fields make this region of diverse communities an exciting and dynamic place to be a reporter.
