Chalkbeat believes in telling stories: The stories of teachers, the stories of parents, the stories of children, and the stories of our schools.

Now we’re inviting readers to share their experiences with Detroit schools — submit yours here. We’ll publish the best on our site plus select a few to be told live on stage at the Charles H. Wright Museum on March 17 at our upcoming event hosted by Satori Shakoor of The Secret Society of Twisted Storytellers. (Get your tickets here before they sell out.)

For a preview, watch this video of last week’s Secret Society of Twisted Storytellers, where Erin Einhorn, our senior reporter in Detroit, shared a story about the moment she realized Detroiters needed new and better ways to get information about their schools. Her story begins at the 7-minute mark.

The COVID-19 outbreak is changing our daily reality

Chalkbeat is a nonprofit newsroom dedicated to providing the information families and educators need, but this kind of work isn't possible without your help.
