The Role, Beginnings, Membership, and Services of High School Press Associations in the United States.
Campbell, Laurence R.
This study had three purposes: (1) to stimulate discussion of the role of the high school press association in the future by reviewing its current policies and programs, (2) to gather information about the associations, particularly the date of founding and the name of the founder, (3) to gather information on the members in each association and on the number of potential members. A questionnaire concerned with history and membership was mailed to all high school press associations in the directory of regional, state, and area high school press associations. More than 30 associations answered the questionnaire. Findings include: (1) Nearly all of the high school press organizations were founded with the cooperation of schools or departments of journalism; (2) The first state-wide high school press association was The Oklahoma Interscholastic Press Association; (3) High school press association policies on membership vary widely. A total of 24 tables is included. (CK)
