Claudio Sánchez, a native of Nogales, Mexico, graduated from Northern Arizona University with postbaccalaureate studies at the University of Arizona in Tucson. As an Education Correspondent for National Public Radio (NPR), he focuses on the “three Ps” of education reform: politics, policy and pedagogy. A former elementary and middle school teacher, he now reports regularly on NPR’s award-winning news magazines Morning Edition, All Things Considered, and Weekend Edition.
Claudio joined NPR in 1989, after serving for a year as executive producer for the El Paso, Texas-based Latin American News Service, a daily national radio news service covering Latin America and the U.S.- Mexico border. From 1984 to 1988, Sanchez was the news and public affairs director at KXCR-FM in El Paso. During this time, he contributed reports and features to NPR’s news programs.
In 1985, Claudio received one of broadcasting’s top honors, the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Silver Baton, for a series he co-produced, “Sanctuary: The New Underground Railroad.” In addition, he has won the Guillermo Martínez-Márquez Award for Best Spot News, the El Paso Press Club Award for Best Investigative Reporting and was recognized for outstanding local news coverage by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
He was named as a Class of 2007 Fellow by the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University. In 2008, Claudio won First Prize in the Education Writers Association’s National Awards for Education Reporting, for his series “The Student Loan Crisis.”
