Lane Wright is the Director of Policy Analysis at Education Post, a national education nonprofit focused on improving schools. Lane tells stories that help families understand how their schools are doing, how to make them better, and how policy plays a role. He’s a former journalist, former press secretary to Florida’s governor, and has worked exclusively in education policy since 2013.
During his career he’s interviewed teachers, students, and local school leaders. He’s spent time watching them work in the classroom and helped them raise their voices on issues they care about. He’s also helped parents advocate—in the news, and before lawmakers—for a better education for their own kids.
Lane is the father of three children who attend (or will soon attend) public school in Tallahassee.
