Focus groups on education news
If anyone would like to give your opinion on this (and I know a lot of you are opinionated!) you can contact Crystal about participating in an upcoming focus group. It sounds like they mainly have the Northside groups at 8pm open right now….(Tues night for high school parents, Weds night for Elem parents.)
We are looking for parents who would like to help shape a new Web site devoted to news about education in Chicago and Illinois.
Who are we?
The Chicago News Cooperative is a nonprofit group of journalists dedicated to public service journalism. We produce a twice-weekly Chicago Report for the New York Times, and will launch a new local news Web site in the upcoming months. We have been working with organizations such as the Neighborhood Parents Network for input in how we should cover schools.
What would we need you to do?
Participate in a small focus group. Share your thoughts on education news. We want to get your feedback on some of the projects we are considering so we can determine where to invest our reporting resources. You would be helping to shape this exciting new, first-of-its-kind, nonprofit news project.
The focus groups are scheduled for the evenings of Tuesday, Sept. 14 or Wednesday, Sept. 15. Sessions start at 5:30 p.m. or 8 p.m. and will last about 2 hours. To thank you for your time and involvement with the project, participants will receive a small gift card in appreciation.
If you would like to help, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, email, a phone number where we might reach you and the ages of your children. Please indicate which of the four focus groups you would be available to attend. Also, let us know if a downtown location or a North Side location works better for you.
