Community journalism in times of economic crisis

By the Notebook on Jun 1, 2009 02:29 PM

The Media Mobilizing Project launched a new initiative last week, Community Journalism in Times of Economic Crisis. The initiative was created to provide coverage of how people are dealing with the economic crisis that the for-profit media may have missed.

You can read the first Communit y Journalism newsletter here, which includes a piece about the Philadelphia Student Union's "Teacher Quality Report Card" action.

The MMP also recently launched a new section of their site, PhillyEducationJustice.org.

The economic crisis and stimulus bill it prompted have actually turned out to be a financial boon for education funding. As Secretary Duncan said, this is an "opportunity that won't come again." 

And, what is it Philly can look forward to from the stimulus funding? $435 million. Yes, nearly a half a billion dollars. You can read more about Pennsylvania's plans for stimulus funding on its Recovery Web site, view the state's application for education stimulus dollars, and see the estimated breakdown of the money by district. In the Summer edition of the Notebook, Paul Socolar explored why that high dollar figure may not amount to as much of an increase as it seems.

Keep checking the Notebook blog for community journalism, more information about the District budget, and ongoing scrutiny of where the millions of stimulus dollars go and how they are used.

This is indeed a wonderful initiative. You were right about what you said about the behavior of the profit media who won’t simply cover this news. They don’t seem to be much interested in the hardship common people face during an economic crisis. washington monument tour
