T-Squared: Partnering with the Chronicle
Coming this Sunday, the first of hopefully many joint projects between the Tribune and the Houston Chronicle will see publication — both on our site and on the Chron's front page.
This Sunday, the first of hopefully many joint projects between the Tribune and the Houston Chronicle will see publication — both on our site and on the venerable newspaper's front page. Our own Emily Ramshaw and the Chron's Terri Langford have been working on the story for weeks, and all I can tell you is what the Chron itself said tonight in a teaser it posted online:
Coming Sunday: A Houston Chronicle and Texas Tribune investigation finds children living in residential treatment centers have been provoked to fight, been punched and choked, forced to strip down to their underwear, and have engaged in sexual acts with staffers. The state of Texas spends millions of dollars each year to care for these teens and children. At least 250 times in the last two years, those same children have been physically or emotionally abused, records show.
Stay tuned; it's a biggie. More about the partnership in a blog post also to be published here this Sunday. But for now, know this: We couldn't be happier about partnering with such fine folks and amazing journalists.
