About Dana

I am a staff writer at The Marshall Project and author of the forthcoming book The Teacher Wars: A History of America’s Most Embattled Profession (Doubleday, September 2, 2014). I  write about social science, inequality, education, criminal justice, politics, women’s issues, cities, and public health. My work appears in publications like The Atlantic and Slate.

Previously, I was an associate editor at The Daily Beast and The American Prospect. I graduated from Brown University and grew up in beautiful Ossining, New York, alongside the Hudson River.

I live in Brooklyn. You can contact me at danagoldstein /at/ gmail.com.
