School Governance

Policy Press

Education is not a top priority for newspaper editors and stories on education are often squeezed out in order to give priority to areas such as health, social care or immigration. In terms of journalistic reporting, as one ex-education editor put it in May 2014: “[You] are more likely to find education reporters that are or have been school governors than have reported on it”–a fact borne out by this particular analysis. This chapter looks to contextualise reporting on school governors within the period 2008-2015 taking a granular approach to investigating the changes in the ways in which school governing was framed during this period.
