Featured journalist: Jessica Lahey
Today's featured journalist is none other than Jessica Lahey, a correspondent with the New York Times and The Atlantic. An educator, writer, and speaker, Lahey also writes about parenting and education for Vermont Public Radio and her own blog, "Coming of Age in the Middle." Check out her Muck Rack portfolio here, which includes links to her coverage for the Times, for The Atlantic and for VPR!
In the wake of the UC Santa Barbara shooting last weekend, Lahey made an appearance (one of many this year) on the Today Show this week to talk about both parents' and education's role in preventing reocurrences of these tragedies. Be on the lookout for her new book, "The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed," which will be published by HarperCollins in 2015!
