WHO’S HONORING US NOW…. You may have noticed that Colbert has a regular feature called, “Who’s Honoring Me Now.” Well, we here at the Monthly also like to make note of who’s honoring us now.

Camille Esch won an Education Writers Association award — second place in the magazine category — for her great piece, “Higher Ed’s Bermuda Triangle,” in our college-guide issue last year.

Here’s the award announcement.

Esch directs the California Education Program at the New America Foundation and her work was done with the assistance of an associate fellowship from the Hechinger Institute on Education and the Media.
