Making Jay Mathews A Better Reporter (Media Coverage)

Lots of chatter this week about Jay Mathews' WashPost column: How to Make Me a Better Education Reporter, with some using the column as an excuse to bash education reporters and others taking aim at the study that Mathews used to make his point. (Turns out the sample size is pretty small.)

My take is that the quality of education coverage is fair game and a good topic of discussion, and kudos to Jay for raising it so prominently. The main point, as I see it, is that it's remarkably easy to get swallowed up talking just to education professionals -- administrators, etc. But that may be just as true on other beats.

Hey, where are the edublogs?
