The Influence of News Framing on Support for Charter School Reform
Feuerstein, Abe
Journal of School Choice, v9 n2 p239-266 2015
This study examined the influence of media framing on attitudes toward charter school reform. Participants in an Internet-based experiment were presented, at random, with one of three manipulated news articles framing charter school reform as (a) supportive of values such as freedom, choice, and innovation; (b) conflicting with values such as public accountability; or (c) neutral. Participants were then asked about their preferences with respect to a variety of school reform proposals. Results indicated that the framing did influence the policy preferences of participants in areas such as the expansion of charter schools, but did not consistently predict policy preferences.
