The Rise of Nonprofit Education Journalism and What It Means for Education Researchers

Mon, April 16, 12:25 to 1:55pm, New York Hilton Midtown, Floor: Second Floor, Sutton South

Session Type: Invited Speaker Session


As the news media industry has undergone profound change, a positive development amid the disruption has been the growth in philanthropy-supported news outlets, including those that specialize in education coverage. This session will focus on how these news providers differ from traditional outlets in their coverage of education and education research and data; and how they complement, supplement, and influence news coverage nationally and locally. Panelists will also discuss the new opportunities that these outlets provide education researchers and best practices for scholars who want to communicate their work through media coverage.
