Summary

The main way in which research findings can be disseminated to a wide audience is via the mass media. However, there are frequent complaints that media coverage of social and educational research is very limited and often highly distorted. Exploring this issue in depth, this key book analyzes British media reports of a research review dealing with ethnic inequalities in educational achievement. Written by a well-respected scholar and covering many areas - including education, media studies, cultural studies, sociology and social policy - this book will undoubtedly be of great interest to a broad cross section of readers.
