Overarching Media Coverage of Education Issues: A Cognitive Media Analysis

Moira O'Neil

This report from the FrameWorks Institute’s Core Story of Education Project is part of a series that analyzes media discourse regarding learning, education, and education reform and how these discourses impact public understanding of an issue. The report examines how topics related to learning and education are regularly treated in the media, and explores the impact of these patterns on public thinking about education issues. 

The media has the potential to expand the public's assumptions about the actors who comprise the education system beyond students, parents and teachers.
