Citizens for Unbiased Media Coverage of Public Education in Washington, D.C.

Target: Education Media Sources

Petition Background (Preamble):

During the Summer of 2008, DCPS volunteers were dispatched throughout the city to survey residents on how involved they felt their community to be in public education.

Overwhelmingly, these respondents reported that they heard mostly bad news about their schools. In fact, 68% felt that news outlets mostly reported the bad, while 9% heard mostly good, and 19% heard both equally.

With this information, we have come to realize that there must be a fundamental transformation in the portrayal of DC schools.

Petition:

We the citizens of the District of Columbia tire of the media's persistent, negative coverage of events pertaining to public schools in the District.

I sign this petition as both a declaration of my aggravation by this biased media reportage and as a plea for a more equitable media portrayal of local public schools' affairs.
