DescriptionEducation News Colorado is an online-only news site devoted exclusively to in-depth coverage of Colorado state education news and policy. The site began operating in its present form in 2008 but can trace its roots back to Headfirst Colorado a state-wide quarterly print magazine that until current EdNews publisher Alan Gottlieb came aboard in 2006 would have been more accurately described as a policy journal than a journalistic entity. When he arrived as editor Gottlieb began to steer the publication more towards original reporting. Headfirst was reorganized into an online-only publication in 2007; the savings from the move were used in part to sustain funding for a full-time position for Gottlieb as editor.
