Captive Voices: The Report of the Commission of Inquiry into High School Journalism.
Contained in this report are the results of a national inquiry conducted by the Commission of Inquiry into High School Journalism (sometimes called the Kennedy Commission), which examined the current status of high school journalism. Contents include "Censorship," which summarizes the different kinds of censorship uncovered by the commission; "Minority Participation," which cites some of the problems students from racial, cultural, and ethnic minorities face in joining the journalism staff; "Journalism and Journalism Education," which discusses the low priority given journalism and journalism education by high school administrations; "Established Media," which examines the lack of encouragement given by the print and electronic media, which are dependent on the continuous flow of talent coming out of high schools; and "Toward Action" which lists the recommendations of the commission to ameliorate the present conditions. The document concludes with three appendixes containing guidelines for high school journalism, the results of survey analyses, and selected readings. (RB)
