Carnegie-Knight Foundation Reports on News in Schools

Mandatory Testing and News in the Schools: Implications for Civic Education is the first of a series of reports from the Carnegie-Knight Task Force whose research arm is based at the Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics & Public Policy at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government. The Internet and the Threat It Poses to Local Media: Lessons from News in the Schools is the second report in the series. Both of these reports came out in January 2007. The most recent offering, a more substantial 35 page report, Young People and News (July 2007) based on a national survey of 1,800 teens, young adults, and older adults, examines the amount of daily news consumption by young people. All three reports can be found at the Shorenstein Center site. Look for more reports in the future.
