Newspapers and school districts form a tentative partnership in the dissemination of enucation news. Subjects preferred by readers have not been reflected in actual education news coverage. Emphasis on utility information at the expense of indepth writing about what is going on in public education has been standard practice. Content analysis shows that while quantity of education news seems reasonable, the quality of that news fails to transmit to readers the substance of what teachers and children are accomplishing in the public schools.
