Education journalists carry great responsibility as they strive to write about the nation’s diverse schools in ways that are inclusive, and that minimize their own biases. 

That’s why the Education Writers Association, whose membership includes hundreds of reporters across the nation, has released the Reporter Guide for Inclusive Coverage. The guide was produced in conjunction with Joe Grimm, a faculty member at Michigan State University’s College of Communication Arts and Sciences and the creator of the Bias Busters series.

In addition, the foreword was written by Dorinda Carter Andrews, professor and chairperson of the Department of Teacher Education in the MSU College of Education.
