David DesRoches, who most recently reported on education for WNPR, writes a concerning column about the state of reporting in Connecticut. His focus is on the decreasing number of education reporters, but it applies to most beats.

It used to be that 10 reporters covered state board of education meetings, according to Linda Lambeck, who’s been covering education at the Connecticut Post for more than three decades. Now, if there’s more than one, “a little cheer goes up at the state board of ed because they feel like they’re being watched,” Lambeck said.
