A diverse range of voices on all things education.
We believe intellectual diversity benefits American education and therefore seek to publish a thoughtful range of voices from teachers to advocates, scholars, and industry leaders—left, right, and center.
Our Story

Two organizations. One vision.

1 - Circle

Choice Media is founded as a non-profit education news organization in 2011 to bring awareness to underreported education stories from around the United States.

2 - Circle

Chalkboard Review is founded in 2020 to provide a heterodox outlet for editorials, breaking news, and other commentary from educators.

3 - Circle

Choice Media becomes Chalkboard Media in 2022, partnering with Chalkboard Review to provide a one-stop shop for transparent and diverse education news, stories, and commentary.

Our Mission

Broadcast the Voice of Every Education Stakeholder

No one should be kept from participating in the discussion on education. Our editing team doesn’t decide whether a piece is politically appropriate—our audience decides whether a piece has merit.
Our Vision

Unrestricted Access to Education Content in One Convenient Location

Whether it’s commentary, reporting, podcasts, interviews, tips & tricks, stories, legal analysis—you should be able to find it here. No paywalls, no restrictions, no directed algorithms, and no censorship—just pure education news and opinion in a variety of formats.
