About

Edify is WBUR’s multimedia project covering education in Boston and beyond. On air, here at wbur.org, on Facebook and Twitter, and in live events around town, we discover and share the stories that matter most to you.

Edify grew out of an earlier WBUR project, Learning Lab. You can still access all our Learning Lab stories here. Edify will continue the work we started there and will expand our coverage of education, from preschool to grad school and beyond.

In all our coverage, we look for human stories – stories about the real people whose lives are touched by education.

We aim to go deeper, with fresh perspectives on where, how and why we learn. We won’t just look at what’s happening in education – we’ll try to figure out why. And we’ll strive always to talk with you, not at you.

So help us take the education conversation beyond the usual voices. Connect with us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, or drop us a line. Tell us: When it comes to education, what would you like to know?
