Knowledge, Learning, Community

As usual, many of the lessons here for journalism could also apply to education. Today we're looking at the role of journalism. There is no direct analogy between 'journalist as watchdog' and 'educator as whatever' but nonetheless the values we presume apply to education might no longer be relevant to the community at large. So this is an interesting approach: " The API study recommends they (journalists) consider reworking stories in order to broaden their appeal to people who belong to multiple groups - those who prefer order and have respect for leaders, those who feel the powerless deserve a voice, and so on." I won't say I totally agree with the outcome, but the thinking behind it seems solid.
