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.
