Reconstruction Report Media Assistant (Short Term)

In January of 2022, the Zinn Education Project, coordinated by Rethinking Schools and Teaching for Change, will release a national report, “Erasing the Black Freedom Struggle: How State Standards Teach Myths About Reconstruction,” as part of our Teach Reconstruction campaign.

This report represents a comprehensive effort by the Zinn Education Project to understand Reconstruction’s place in state social studies standards across the United States, examine the nature and extent of the barriers to teaching effective Reconstruction history, and make focused recommendations for improvement.

We are seeking a media assistant for state and national media on the report. The responsibilities include crafting state and regional press releases based on the national release and the contents of the report, providing teacher contacts in response to media requests, and social media to promote the report.

This work would be on a contract basis from December 2021 to June of 2022. It would be part-time; however, the person would need to have a flexible schedule to respond to media requests within 24 hours.
