What’s the Story? National Media Coverage of Higher Education in Canada
Coverage of postsecondary education in Canadian print media outlets is declining and has been trending downward since the mid-2000s, says a new report from the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO). What's the Story? National Media Coverage of Higher Education in Canada also finds that government policy is the most common topic covered in news articles, while coverage of skills and training has increased over the past 15 years.

Project description

The study's authors from the University of Toronto, Scarborough used computerized text-analysis techniques to comb through thousands of news articles (both print and online) related to postsecondary education published from 1999 to 2015. The articles were drawn from 15 newspapers and magazines that were selected to capture the largest circulation media outlets in major Canadian markets as well as those with a national focus. The study examines coverage of eight key issues: cost, enrolment, skills and training, research, labour issues, programs and curriculum, government policy, and tuition. It also looks at regional variation in media coverage and the tone of the coverage.
