The High School Magazine.
Campbell, Laurence R.
A survey was made of high school press organizations throughout the country, and the following data was collected. The purposes of the magazines were found to be: (1) to stimulate creativity in writing, (2) to provide enjoyment for readers, and (3) to develop teamwork in student publishing. There are currently over 600 school magazines under publication. The typical staff has from 11 to 20 members, and staffs tend to be somewhat casual in their policies and operations. In 81% of the schools surveyed, 81% of the advisers are English majors. Financing the magazine is the greatest problem of the staff; 90% operate on a budget under $2,000. The lack of success of the school magazine in comparison to that of the school newspaper or yearbook is a result of its failure to inspire widespread appeal. (CK)
