What Editors and Journalism Educators Expect from Journalism Education; An ANPA News Research Center Survey. News Research Bulletin No. 12.
Hulteng, John L.
The purpose of this survey was to assemble data about the expectations of editors and journalism educators as to journalism education, with the objective of providing a basis for an informed dialogue about ways to advance and support education for journalism. Some of the findings were: editors much less than educators perceived newly-hired graduates as having an adequate understanding of newsroom principles; newly-hired graduates' journalistic skills were evaluated much higher by educators than by editors, and school administrators evaluated the graduates' skills considerably higher than did the teachers; more than one-half of the editors who claimed to know, overestimated highly the proportion of the student's program that is devoted to courses in journalism, and five out of eight underestimated the proportion of liberal arts courses taken by the journalism student.
