Don’t call it a newsletter. THR is an ongoing, online briefing book on the state-of-play in the world of education. It is an essential resource for any professional operating or working with an organization, business, school, or district in the B2B education space, including K-12, higher-ed, and professional learning.
Your subscription includes:
News curation. Don’t have time to scroll through every education-based article, blog post, white paper, survey, study, forecast, and podcast? That’s what we’re here for. THR provides a succinct summary of the most important journalism, analysis, and opinion—detailing the biggest deals, the most cogent data releases, the biggest personnel moves—packaged into occasional handy emails and tucked into your inbox.
Information concierge. Need to find some statistics to back up your presentation? Want some competitive analysis of the edtech market? The crack team of THR researchers is here to help. No automated chatbot. Real human response.
Community advocate. Start a dialogue with fellow readers. Promote a cause to benefit teachers and students. Organize a coalition of colleagues to petition congress or post a job opportunity. THR provides the forum and makes the connections.
Unvarnished analysis. Here’s the fun bit. No editing by committee. THR is straight from the notes and interviews by veteran education journalist Kevin Hogan, host of Marketscale’s EdTechToday podcast series and Editor-At-Large for eSchool News.
Why it’s worth it:
We will take it easy on your inbox. No SPAM, no index of retread hyperlinks, no “special offers” or “holiday greetings” to scroll through—either from us or third-party actors. Just regular postings of THR and the occasional freebie update if there is something of value to report immediately.
We will try to keep it interesting, even enjoyable! We don’t care about eyeballs or traffic or SEO here at THR. We do care about sharing the most important education information, as it happens, with our readers. We want you to be the smartest person at the cocktail reception (remember those?)
We also like puns in headlines, the occasional tangent, and even a rant now and again. Plus, the format here at Substack is pretty darn slick. (Here’s an interesting piece on their business model). The ability to embed audio and video makes it easy to watch or listen to the curated content on whatever device you choose, whenever you want.
