The Nation's Scholastic Press Association Directors Describe the State of High School Journalism.
Olson, Lyle D.; And Others
A national survey of 154 scholastic press association directors (who play a crucial role in guiding and shaping high school journalism) garnered an overview of the state of scholastic journalism in the United States today. Seventy-eight scholastic press association directors, representing over 30 states and 4 national associations, responded to the survey. The survey asked questions about advisers, student journalists, the rights of high school journalists, and state scholastic press association activities. Overall, results showed that 44% of the respondents were more optimistic than they were 5 years ago about the future of journalism programs in their states' schools, while 36% were less optimistic. (Two figures, six tables of data giving survey components and summarized results, and 15 notes are included.) (SR)
