Best Journalist: Erica Green, Baltimore Sun

Green has dominated local education reporting as never before, delivering consistent scoops about the doings of North Avenue, as well as deep, compassionate reporting about the teachers and students. When a school official resigns, or is pushed out, Green gets it. When a budget is cut, or layoffs loom, Green gets it. When the school system admits it forgot to budget for furniture in its billion-dollar rebuilding plan, Green gets it. Baltimore City needs an aggressive reporter on education—the folks at North Avenue are notoriously shifty when it comes to sharing even basic info about our deeply troubled school system with the press—and Green refuses to let them off the hook.
