A Study of the Perceptions of Publishers, Editors and Education Reporters Related to the Desirability and Feasibility of Three Approaches to Increasing Newspaper Coverage of American Education.
Dickson, James Brian
This study sought to determine the perceptions of U.S daily newspaper publishers, editors, and education reporters regarding the desirability and feasibility of three approaches to increasing education news coverage: increased traditional local emphasis on education news coverage by daily newspapers, expanded wire service coverage of education, and multipage weekly regional education news supplements to daily newspapers. A questionnaire, sent to 606 individuals on daily newspapers, was accompanied by an eight-page tabloid prototype weekly education news supplement containing articles reprinted with permission from various education periodicals and other periodicals of general circulation. Analysis of the findings indicated that a majority of the publishers and editors were satisfied with present levels of local educational news coverage and wire service coverage of education, and that a majority of the publishers and editors did not regard publication by their dailies of a regional weekly education news supplement as either desirable or feasible. Several implications are derived from the results of the study. (Author/RB)
