Avi Wolfman-Arent announced on Facebook yesterday he is moving on from Delaware to greener pastures. Avi was the education reporter for WHYY/Newsworks. He will be joining the Philadelphia branch. I wish him the best of luck!
This is the second education reporter Delaware has lost this year. Matthew Albright with the News Journal is still in Delaware, but he is covering Legislative Hall. Avi gave education a very different perspective in Delaware. I remember the first time I came across him during the entire Family Foundations Academy debacle at the end of 2014. We had our disagreements along the way but I always respected the Wolfman! Some of his articles were nothing I expected but delivered in their thoroughness and research.
We still have the excellent Larry Nagengast and James Dawson here in Delaware, and Albright’s former title at the News Journal was replaced by Brittany Horn. Like Delaware education, people come and go, but it is always interesting to say the least.
