What is Education Week?

Education Week is an online journal on education published by Editorial Projects in Education, an independent, non-profit publisher. The newspaper's mission is "to raise awareness and understanding of critical issues facing American schools" (as cited in their About Us page). Thanks to the Education program here at Eastern, current faculty, staff, and students now have access to this great resource.
