The Hechinger Report is a nonprofit news organization that specializes in in-depth education reporting.

The Report is a project of the Hechinger Institute on Education and the Media at the Columbia University Teacher’s College. It was launched in October 2009 with $1 million in initial funding from the Lumina Foundation for Education and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and its website was created in May 2010. It distributes its work through its website, as well as syndication partnerships with other news organizations, such as Education Week and MinnPost. It has collaborated with as many as 14 other news organizations on a single story. The Report allows anyone to republish any of its content online for free with credit and a link.

The site has four full-time editorial employees, with much of its work coming from freelancers. The site runs several education blogs as well.
