If you have ideas that merit greater public attention, CommunicationWorks can help shape and present your story, develop media events, and get headlines. We have helped our clients gain prominent placements in every major print and broadcast outlet in the country.
In a given year, we coordinated more than 40 national and regional news events – including a National Education Summit that drew 113 million impressions – and numerous report releases addressing national and state policy challenges across all 50 states. Because we conduct such a high volume of media work, reporters regularly come to us for future story ideas, new angles, and support to provide more comprehensive, accurate, and thoughtful coverage.
Our signature activities have included managing media and communications for the past three National Education Summits that brought federal officials, the nation’s governors, and education and business leaders together to plot the future of education in the United States. The firm has released scores of studies on education policy over the past 15 years, including analyses of the effect and implementation of the federal No Child Left Behind law, new directions for federal policy, the rigor of state and national standards, quality of teacher education, need for greater equity, college access and affordability, the status of youth health and sex education, and teacher supply. The firm also has released scores of reports on national education progress, including 19 studies for The Nation’s Report Card and every edition of Quality Counts from 1996 through 2010.
