Abstract

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 book analyzes British media reports of a research review dealing with ethnic inequalities in educational achievement.
