8 Great Ideas for Scholastic Journalism in 2008

Wednesday, January 09, 2008

In keeping with the theme of journalistic resolutions for the New Year, veteran journalism educators Candace Perkins-Bowen and John Bowen offer some much-needed goals for the scholastic free expression movement for 2008. This past year brought some setbacks to student free expression, such as the Bong Hits 4 Jesus Supreme Court decision, but that's even more of a motivator to start 2008 off right.

Among their ideas:
1. Starting a cohesive national movement to establish state laws that protect student press rights in high school and colleges.
2. Encouraging the professional media to support student free expression.
3. Leading an initiative to discourage prior review among administrators.
