What is Substance?

A monthly investigative newspaper devoted to in-depth reporting on the major issues facing public education. Our focus has been on Chicago in particular. Since the advent of high-stakes testing and the “standards and accountability” attack on democratic public education, we have broadened our coverage. We now include news of the growing national resistance to the dictators who would destroy the democratic traditions of public education in the USA.
Beginning in 1975, our staff insisted that we develop a brand of journalism unique in the United States — advocacy from the inside. Substance reporters are the most knowledgeable education writers in Chicago because we have all spent years in Chicago’s public school classrooms.
All of the Chicago reporters and editors at Substance are or have been full-time teachers (or other workers) in public schools. Our national staff includes parents, teachers and community activists committed to the ideals of public education and the education of all children.
Please note that Substance revenues come almost completely from paid subscriptions. At $16.00 per year, Substance is one of the best bargains in education journalism today. We publish a great deal more information every month in our print edition than we post here online. Please subscribe.
