A Paradigm for State High School Press Freedom Laws.
Olson, Lyle D.; And Others
To assist journalism educators and legislators who wish to initiate passage of anti-Hazelwood laws, this paper reports on the first stage of a research project on nationwide efforts at getting state legislation passed to override the 1988 Supreme Court Hazelwood School District vs. Kuhlmeier decision. The laws of five states (Massachusetts, California, Colorado, Kansas, and Iowa) which have been successful in passing legislation to override the l988 Hazelwood decision are compared and contrasted in the paper. The paper also offers a 1-page paradigm that summarizes the features of each law. Future research is called for that would examine data from the five states that have passed such laws to determine if they have indeed reduced the incidence of student press censorship. An appendix provides the complete text of all enacted student free speech legislation and a copy of the Student Press Law Center Model Legislation. (NH)
