Rethinking Schools is a nonprofit publisher and advocacy organization dedicated to sustaining and strengthening public education through social justice teaching and education activism.

The managing editor works with our curriculum editor to review submissions, nurture new writers, and do developmental editing with promising articles. They organize and chair the monthly meetings of the editorial board, which makes final decisions about which articles appear in the magazine. The managing editor is responsible for all aspects of the production of our quarterly magazine: creating the table of contents, developmental editing and copyediting, working with the art director on design and illustration, proofreading and corrections, etc. In general, making sure that all aspects of production (including getting the magazine up online) are on schedule and on budget.
