In the eyes of most journalism educators, the negative effects of censorship on students, advisers and communities are very real. The SPLC publication, Press Freedom in Practice, A Manual for Student Media Advisers on Responding to Censorship, published by the Newspaper Association of America Foundation, is our effort to counter that impact in two ways:

  • By providing real-life examples of advisers and students avoiding or overcoming censorship.
  • By offering sound educational arguments that can be used to persuade censor-prone school administrators that there is a better way.
