Hiring multimedia journalist

The Richmond Times-Dispatch is hiring an aggressive and observant reporter to cover schools in the city of Richmond and write about statewide K-12 trends.

The ideal candidate will be able to cover the schools in Virginia's capital city, while planning and turning around enterprise stories and deep dives about issues that affect schools across the state.

Virginia has no shortage of critically important K-12 issues, from curricula, including how to teach racial history; to aging school infrastructure; to policies on transgender students and admission to governors schools.

We're looking for a reporter who brings urgency and a collaborative spirit to the task, a journalist who can cut through the academic jargon and explain how K-12 issues matter - to students, parents, teachers and the broader community.

We value memorable storytelling and accountability journalism that makes a difference.
