High school media: three issues
To read carefully and discuss:
1. A recent study indicated that only 33 percent of public high schools in the nation have any online student media. What might the reasons be for that?
2. Look again at the laws on prior restraint. Understand the cases that shaped the rules? How do these apply to student journalists? Are there guiding legal principles that apply to high school journalism?
3. Consider these articles from Nieman Reports and the Student Press Law Center. How might the limited First Amendment protections afforded high school students influence their perceptions about the importance of those protections for others?
