The article discusses measures U.S. newspapers could take to improve minority representation. They include the need for performance measures to explicitly incorporate efforts to reach the newspaper's diversity goals. It is recommended that newspapers manage their Newspapers in Education (NIE) programs to further their diversity goals. The author emphasizes that becoming a journalist is a socialization process that begins at home. He adds that those who grew up with newspapers in their home are three times as likely to develop an interest in journalism as those who did not.
