As president of Editorial Projects in Education (EPE), Virginia “Ginny” Edwards oversees the ninety-person, $14.5 million-a-year nonprofit corporation that publishes Education Week and edweek.org. She has held the post since 1997.
Since 1989, Ms. Edwards has been the editor-in-chief of Education Week—the premier “newspaper of record” for precollegiate education in the United States. For the past sixteen years, she has also served as editor of edweek.org, which reaches an audience of more than 1.2 million registered users. EPE also publishes Digital Directions magazine and Teacher Professional Development Sourcebook, and is home to the TopSchoolJobs.org job-recruitment service and the EPE Research Center.
Before joining EPE, Ms. Edwards worked for two years at Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and, for nearly ten years before that, was an editor and reporter at The Courier-Journal in Louisville, Kentucky.
