Here are some guidelines to help you approach your blog post.

Submission Guidelines

Length: 400-600 words

Audience: Parents, educators, ed policy wonks and education reform advocates

Topics: A key theme on the Education Post blog is closing the belief gap that exists for Black, Brown and low-income kids. We want to end the notion that because of the circumstances of their birth, certain kids are never going to make it to college or have a successful career. Bloggers touch on this through topics such as high academic standardsaccountability for struggling schools, high-quality charter schoolseducational equitycollege accessfirst-generation students, and other challenges faced by BlackLatinoNative American and other traditionally underserved demographics.

Tone: Avoid jargon, and be conversational not formal. Put yourself into the post and make clear your standing on the issue, whether you’re writing as a parent, teacher, student or a passionate advocate. Our best posts are usually personal narratives, but don’t shy away from using a key data point or two to support the case you’re making (and don’t forget to hyperlink it).

Format: We use Google Docs to share and edit posts before publication, however if you prefer to send over a Word document that will work, just don’t send PDFs. If you have any photos to accompany the piece, please email them to us separately as attachments and make sure to send the highest resolution possible. You’re welcome to suggest a headline for your post when you send it over, but keep in mind that we often rewrite the headline and select an associated image without consulting the author. Just let us know, though, if you have any concerns about that.

Submissions should be emailed directly to submissions@educationpost.org. Please note we receive many submissions and not all are selected for publication, but we encourage you to reach out
