DescriptionIn September 2011 reporter Jon Marcus wrote a story for The Washington Post which showed that despite increased enrollment thanks to an expanded G.I. Bill colleges weren’t doing enough to support the unique needs of veterans pursuing higher education. Shortly after the story was published colleges in the DC area added coordinators to help veterans with services. Over eight Sundays in late 2010 the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel ran a front-page series about teacher effectiveness in Wisconsin. The stories helped prompt the statewide teachers union to ask for new teacher evaluation and compensation systems.
