Here’s the problem: 1. Diagnosing the health of a journalism or communications school requires a lot of vital statistics, not just a few. 2. Most of the nation’s journalism schools do a poor job of reporting on themselves. There are few useful metrics. 3. Most field-wide research about journalism education is too tired or weak to be useful. 4. To know what to measure, you have to know what it is you are actually trying to do. What is a journalism school for, anyway?
