Media Literacy and the Hungarian National Core Curriculum--A Curate's Egg
Neag, Anamaria
Journal of Media Literacy Education, v7 n1 p35-45 2015
In recent years, Hungary has been frequently criticized about press freedom issues by organizations including Human Rights Watch, Freedom House and others. In the current situation, it is thus imperative to understand how media literacy is positioned in public education. The objective of this paper is to analyze the 2012 education curriculum on media education in Hungary and to evaluate the definitions used for constructing media literacy in the National Core Curriculum (NCC). For doing so I apply tools derived from Critical Discourse Analysis and I seek to identify the educational goals of media literacy education. The new NCC brought along major changes, and it reflected a strengthening of national consciousness. The paper offers insights on how these changes influenced the agenda of media literacy education in Hungary.
