Don't Mess with the Student Press.
Abrams, Marc
American School Board Journal, v181 n9 p32-35 Sep 1994
School boards should not interfere with student newspapers, beyond disciplining libelous journalists fairly. Instead of censoring articles, school boards and administrators should allow student journalists to make mistakes and pay later. If a lawsuit results from an irresponsible article, the school pays only if it controls. Rebecca Jones's sidebars summarize legalities and a Florida district's policy. (MLH)
