Newspaper Guidelines for High School Journalists.
Campbell, Laurence R.
This study attempts to determine what principals, advisers, and others believe is the role of high school student newspapers, and it suggests guidelines to follow in writing these newspapers. The study is based on a questionnaire sent to selected principals, headmasters of nonpublic schools, newspaper advisers, and editors of junior college and community college newspapers. The study includes 127 tables listing responses to the questionnaire. It discusses a variety of topics, including the function, definition, role, and status of the student newspaper, as well as the roles played by boards of education, principals, advisers, and newspaper boards in the production of these newspapers. The authors conclude that on the basis of the limited response to the questionnaire, advisers and administrators generally showed little interest in having regular press conferences with student editors, creating newspaper boards, establishing newspaper guidelines, or developing a love for freedom of the press among teenagers.
