May 2, 2016

The Education Writers Association on Sunday released "State of the Education Beat 2016," an examination of trends in journalistic coverage of all levels of education. Among the findings:

  • Reporters are far more likely to be covering both higher education and elementary and secondary education than they are to have a beat focused entirely on higher education.
  • Ninety-five percent of education journalists believe that their work has a positive impact on education.
  • Seventy-one percent of journalists who cover education are women.
  • Seventy-eight percent of journalists who cover education are white.
