The Department of Education: A Reporter's Guide.
Noting that covering the United States Department of Education can pose special problems for journalists, this report provides information about the operations of the department and notes the strengths and weaknesses of information produced by and about it. The first three sections of the report discuss the current political atmosphere at the department, the history of Federal involvement in education, and the structure of the department. The remaining six sections discuss specific publications key to monitoring the department's activities, education lobbyists, public documents useful in covering the department, the availability and reliability of department sources of information, nondepartmental sources of information and watchdog agencies, and education political action groups.
