This week's topic: education

Happy Monday! After last week's experiment in pointing to stories you might have missed, we're back to a regular news hunt today. This week, we'll focus on education, and there have been a number of interesting stories over the past few months about schools in Baltimore City and County, as well as in the state. 

For some background, here's our news hunt page, which explains what a news hunt is and details some of our recent Baltimore topics, as well as some news hunts on the NewsTrust national site. 

As part of a news hunt, we ask our member community to do two things: find and post journalism on the topic and review related stories at our website. At the end of the news hunt -- which are typically a week on the Baltimore site, though there have been some that are longer -- we summarize how many stories were reviewed and aim to point to the "most trusted" pieces, which links to one of our goals as an organization. 

The success of NewsTrust Baltimore depends on our members -- thank you for your participation, and we look forward to a good conversation this week about education!
