Karin Chenoweth is a long-time reporter who became an education writer when her two children began public school. Since 2004 she worked at The Education Trust, a national education advocacy organization based in Washington, D.C. During that time she authored two books and co-authored a third about high-performing and rapidly improving high-poverty and high-minority schools. She now writes regularly about schools and education for Huffington Post. In October, 2013, she was honored to be given the Millman Award for her contributions to education research.
Before joining Ed Trust Karin wrote the Homeroom column for The Washington Post for five years. Prior to that she was senior writer and executive editor of Black Issues In Higher Education (now Diverse).
Karin's career includes stints as:
* free-lance writer for publications as varied as Education Week, American Educator, and The Washington Post Magazine.
* local general assignment reporter for the Montgomery Journal, where I won numerous awards for my work; and
* foreign correspondent as a stringer for United Press International where, among other things, I covered the 1981 military coup in Turkey.
Karin is a graduate of Columbia University's School of Journalism.
