Learning Matters is a Peabody Award-winning production company. For over thirteen years, we’ve been producing outstanding reportage about American education.
Our journalism goes beyond just telling a story. We want to make a difference in the lives of young people. We believe that, while problems and injustices are far too common, solutions do exist. And we want to help. In our television programs, podcasts and publications, we spotlight problems and celebrate their solutions.
Veteran correspondent John Merrow founded Learning Matters Inc. in 1995 after an extensive career as a teacher and broadcaster. You can see our programs and segments on The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, Frontline and in our own documentaries. We also produce regular podcasts available on iTunes.
Learning Matters Inc. also coordinates Listen Up!, a youth media network that connects young video producers and their allies to resources, support, and projects in order to develop the field and achieve an authentic youth voice in the mass media.
