Ten Guidelines for Principals and A Free Student Press.
Gibbs, Annette
This paper presents guidelines for the chief student personnel administrator in implementing editorial policies related to freedom of expression in the sanctioned student newspaper. The guidelines are: (1) the function of the student newspaper should be clearly defined and agreed upon by the students, faculty and administrators; (2) the function of the student newspaper, as it relates to student freedom of expression, is parallel with the function of the commercial newspaper; (3) editorial freedom of expression is a basic requirement for the student newspaper; (4) the student newspaper should not be considered as an official publication of its school; (5) students do not forfeit their constitutional rights of freedom of expression; (6) student newspaper editorial policies which promote the lawful educational goals of the school are viewed as desirable by the courts; (7) a publications board offers the best method for providing guidance and leadership for the student newspaper activity; (8) student newspaper editorial freedom of expression requires student responsibility for presenting news and opinion accurately, fairly, and completely; (9) a professionally competent adviser for the student newspaper staff is desirable for both students and the administration; and (10) the student newspaper is primarily a medium of communication for students.
