The mission of the International Journal of Educational Reform (IJER) is to keep readers up-to-date with worldwide developments in education reform by providing scholarly information and practical analysis from recognized international authorities. As the only peer-reviewed scholarly publication that combines authors’ voices without regard for the political affiliations perspectives, or research methodologies, IJER provides readers with a balanced view of all sides of the political and educational mainstream. To this end, IJER includes, but is not limited to, inquiry based and opinion pieces on developments in such areas as policy, administration, curriculum, instruction, law, and research.
IJER should thus be of interest to professional educators with decision-making roles and policymakers at all levels turn since it provides a broad-based conversation between and among policymakers, practitioners, and academicians about reform goals, objectives, and methods for success throughout the world.
Readers can call on IJER to learn from an international group of reform implementers by discovering what they can do that has actually worked. IJER can also help readers to understand the pitfalls of current reforms in order to avoid making similar mistakes. Finally, it is the mission of IJER to help readers to learn about key issues in school reform from movers and shakers who help to study and shape the power base directing educational reform in the U.S. and the world.

MIKE WALLACE

Reader in Education

University of Nottingham

University Park, Nottingham NW 2RD, UK

Introduction

The purposes of this article are threefold: to highlight the significance of the mass media as an integral element of the process of education policy-making and implementation; to report on the initial conceptualisation of research in progress into ways that the British press and broadcasting are implicated in this process (illustrated with some early findings); and to consider an international agenda for research into the media and education policy.

Recent years have witnessed a renewed emphasis on educational reform among western governments. The mass media (principally the press and broadcasting) help to inform education professionals and other members of the public about the educational concerns and policies of central and local government politicians. They are also a source of information for politicians about public opinion on existing policies and the need for new initiatives. The media convey messages between national policymakers and the public, including educational professionals in local education authorities (districts), schools and colleges who are responsible for implementing these policies. Yet little is known about how the media play their part in the policy process within the sphere of education.

“Our actions are … attempts to critically understand our everyday practices in a search for a new form of praxis in which … social agents … have the possibility of collectively constructing … their learning by recreating and reanimating what has historically been systematized to death.”–Movimento Boneco

Peter McLaren

Peter: I am very impressed by what your group stands for and what it has managed to accomplish in a relatively short time. I remember meeting one member of your group, Behel O. Schaefer, in Santa Maria, several years ago, and admiring her political commitment to social change and social justice, and I am glad to see Bel again. That was the first time that I had heard about your organization and I must admit that I was very intrigued. Then I met with some of your other members –again, a very impressive moment-to discuss some issues that seemed not to be addressed in the conference itself. I was very honored by your invitation to come back to Brasil, and to the island of Santa Catarina, in order to work with you and to offer a short course in your university. First of all, I want to thank you for bringing me to Brasil and also for making it possible for me to visit and present my work in Sao Paulo and Porto Alegre. The term “movimento boneco(a)” is unusual – especially as a-term to designate an oppositional political group within the university. What does the term “movimento boneco(a)” mean and how did your movement begin?
