Attacks on the news media are amplified when it comes to student journalism. Schools and colleges as places where meaningful discussion about issues of public concern are undercut through censorship, intimidation, cries of "fake news" and retaliation in the name of "avoiding controversy."
And, as the ranks of full-time professional journalists diminish, student reporters are key to helping fill in the gaps in local, education and statehouse coverage.
With your donation to the Student Press Law Center, you're sending a message: the spirited exchange of ideas isn't a distraction from school: it's the whole point.
