创办一份社区报纸《US EDUCATION TIMES》的想法，来自于创办人YIYI OUYANG看到他在初中的不少来自中国的新移民同学家庭状况之后做出的决定，当时，他的那些同学中很多都是父亲仍旧在中国赚钱养家、由母亲一方陪同在美国读书，在这样的家庭中，绝大部分的父母亲都不懂英文，也不知道美国的教育资讯，面对美国庞大的教育体系显得很无助。帮助他们解决教育中遇到的难题、更多地让他们理解美国的教育理念很早就成为YIYI OUYANG的一个愿望，因此在2017年，YIYI OUYANG萌生了创办一份教育类报纸的想法，并于2017年年底付诸实施。
这个报纸是创办人动员身边的义务工作人员和按小时给付底薪的半义工人员共同的努力的成果，也是创办人希望运营一个小小商业机构的重要实践，《US EDUCATION TIMES》最初两期为八版小型报纸，在大洛杉矶地区（包括尔湾和奇诺岗等地）各华人书店和报纸零售地点均有派送，2018年改为现在的网络报纸。
The idea of creating a community-based newspaper arose when its founder Yiyi Ouyang saw many of his friends, who were new immigrants, unfamiliar with the US education system. At that time, they had their fathers working overseas to maintain the familial income with only the mother to oversee his or her education in a foreign land. In such families, the majority of parents don’t understand English let alone information about schools. Facing this vast, uncharted ocean of knowledge, learning it all seems hopeless to many.
After seeing their plight, Yiyi Ouyang’s wish has always been to help these families solve their education problems and spread the values American schools hope to integrate into their students. So in 2017, Yiyi Ouyang’s vision became to create a newspaper to help these families. And towards the end of the year, everything began to come together.
The newspaper runs on volunteer work and a few hour-paid workers. The founder hopes to run a small business with this handful of contributors. US Education Times currently stands as an 8-page newspaper that delivers to Chinese bookstores and newspaper retail locations in the Los Angeles area (Including Irvine, Chino Hills, etc.). Since 2018, US Education Times has become a solely online newspaper to keep up with the progression of technology.
