by Kathleen Carpenter
Ethan Bronner, author and Education Editor for the New York Times, will participate in an Internet chat session with Teachers.Net on May 9, 9pmE in the Teachers.Net Conference Room http://teachers.net/conference. Participants will be able to pose questions about Bronner's role as journalist and the role of the print media in forming opinion about public education.
Bronner oversees a staff of nine reporters and a columnist who cover education in New York and across the country. Before taking up his post in September, 1999, Bronner was national education correspondent for the Times for two years, reporting on trends in both higher education and grades K-12. Bronner was with The Boston Globe for 12 years where he served as Middle East correspondent, based in Jerusalem, and legal affairs and Supreme Court correspondent in Washington. He began his career at Reuters and worked in London, Madrid and Brussels.
Bronner is author of "Battle for Justice: How the Bork Nomination Shook America" which was chosen by The New York Public Library as one of the 25 best books of 1989. A graduate of Wesleyan University and Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, Bronner is married and has two sons.
