Excellence In Media Reporting On Education Research Award
Excellence In Media Reporting On Education Research Award

2018 Recipient

Matt Barnum

In an era marked by preoccupation with “fake news” and public skepticism about expertise and evidence claims, the role of media in transmitting and interpreting education research has never been more critical. Against this backdrop, Matt Barnum’s reporting for Chalkbeat stands out for its ability to offer a balanced assessment of what we currently know, as well as an accurate sense of why even the best studies provide answers that are only partial, tentative, and dependent on interpretation. Among other excellent journalists considered for this award, Matt Barnum stood
out for his vigorous efforts to sift through multiple studies and for his evident enthusiasm and curiosity about what researchers really do.

The Excellence in Media Reporting on Education Research Award is presented to an individual in the media who has demonstrated excellence in raising awareness, knowledge, and understanding of education research.
