Student Media in U.S. Secondary Schools: Associations with School Demographic Characteristics
Bobkowski, Piotr S.; Goodman, Mark; Bowen, Candace Perkins
Journalism and Mass Communication Educator, v67 n3 p252-266 Sep 2012
This study provides an up-to-date counting of student media in U.S. public high schools. The analysis underscores the importance of school demographic characteristics in predicting whether schools offer student media. The disparities identified here should inform how journalism schools, scholastic journalism organizations, funding agencies, and media companies prioritize their outreach activities to scholastic journalism programs. Precedence should be given to initiatives that address journalism and media programs in smaller schools and in schools that serve larger minority populations. There is also a need for supporting the establishment of online media outlets. (Contains 35 notes, 2 tables and 4 figures.)
