Kate Beem has been a freelance writer since 2001. Before that, she served as the Kansas education writer for The Kansas City Star, covering several school districts and the Kansas Board of Education. In the late 1990s, she received a fellowship from the Education Writers Association to research and write about social conservatives’ impact on public education in Kansas. Her project published as the Kansas Board of Education began its infamous debates over evolution in state science standards. Since 2001, Kate has continued to focus on education writing for journals such as The School Administrator but also has written for business publications such as The Wall Street Journal and Crain’s Chicago Business. She also frequently contributes articles to The Kansas City Star and blogs on Wednesdays on the paper's mom blog, www.mom2momkc.com.
