The Education Writers Association Casts Its Narrowing Gaze on Boston
Phelps, Richard P.
Online Submission
There are many thousands of education researchers in the world, thousands of higher education institutions, and hundreds of relevant research journals. But the EWA has chosen to rely almost exclusively on an infinitesimal proportion of it for expertise. Ironically, the tiny group on which they depend comprises some of the world's most poorly read and censorious researchers. In a variety of ways, the Education Writers Association functions to centralize expertise sourcing. If there were no EWA, the thousands of education journalists who attend their seminars would initiate all their expertise sourcing on their own. The result, in the absence of EWA's suggestions, would be a much wider variety of expertise sourced. And, the US populace would be much better informed.
