This is a book for anyone who has ever wondered about the impact that the media have on the way that people think about schools and colleges. Are charges of negativity true or only in the minds of the beholders? Chapter by chapter, Imaging Education looks closely at the influence of each facet of the media -- from reporting in newspapers to findings in public opinion polls, to television sit-coms and documentaries, to feature films, to college rankings in popular magazines. A stellar group of contributors includes academics, journalists, and researchers, who have all written original chapters for this book addressed to general readers as well as specialists in education and the media.
