Virginia's State Board of Education is scheduled to vote Jan.
A Daily Nebraskan article that discusses the sex lives of University of Nebraska-Lincoln architecture students has caused a flurry of controversy for the newspaper. The story, which appeared in the arts and entertainment section, quotes multiple sources by their first names only, with an illustration alongside showing two students having sex on a drafting table.
Student journalists at Florida Atlantic University no longer have a paid adviser to turn to after the student media director’s recent departure left the department with no employees. Former Student Media Director Marti Harvey sent the university a letter of resignation Jan.
Each day during Scholastic Journalism Week, the staff of the Student Press Law Center is going back to school -- blogging about the impact student media had on their own embryonic lives.
My camera and I were nearly alone on the shoulder of Retreat-Kanaskat Road. A handful of passing cars barely slowed as I stood there surveying the scene.
I went to high school in Alaska (fun fact: I graduated the same year as Sarah Palin, whose high school was about a half-hour away). And no, it wasn’t a one-room building lit by seal oil in the bare, frozen tundra; it was a modern, well-funded, well-equipped school of about 1,600. But as I often tell the many young journalists I speak to each year, about the only thing I can remember about what was called the student “newspaper” at my high school — in reality, just a bunch of stapled 8 ½ x 11” pages — was that it once published my girlfriend’s drawings (along with a really cute photo of her). Other hot topics included a photo collage of students’ cars, a story about the French Club fashion show, a quiz about college mascots, essays/poems about being the best you could be, an interview with the school receptionist about, well, being a school receptionist — and maybe some 3- or 4-week-old sports scores. In other words, it could hardly have been more irrelevant to my life and that of my classmates.
Great journalists aren’t born that way. They are encouraged and seasoned by many, and like most students, mine was a high school newspaper adviser who recognized promising talent and had the ability to spark creativity and inspiration in their students.
I don't talk much about my high school years, typically. I went to high school in Chesterland, Ohio, near Kent State University's Geauga campus. If you've never been to Northeast Ohio, the best way I can describe it is to say that it's a great place to be from.
“Dying is easy – comedy’s hard.” The origin of the Hollywood aphorism is murky, but its truth is undeniable.April 15 may be America's annual day of dread, but for those who advise student publications, it's April 1 -- the day that hundreds of Sara Silverman wannabes find out that they're much less funny than they think they are.Student journalists at Columbia University got off to an early start this year.
Nearly two thousand high school broadcasts journalists, filmmakers and their teachers have landed in Orlando, Fla., this week to take part in the 8th annual Student Television Network. And nearly all of them are packing.
The inability of campus disciplinary systems to deal adequately with sexual-assault cases has been a subject of intense media scrutiny. Rarely has the story been told with as much depth and effectiveness as in NPR's series, "Seeking Justice for Campus Rapes," in which multiple student victims came forward and told their stories on the record, putting their voices on-air and their faces online to dramatize the frequency with which forced sex goes unpunished. On Thursday, the producers of the "Seeking Justice" series were honored with one of 39 Peabody Awards, perhaps the most prestigious award in all of broadcasting, presented annually by the University of Georgia's Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication. The series explores the impact on victims -- some of whom end up dropping out of school to avoid contact with their attackers -- when a student conduct system that was never designed to handle serious criminal offenses deals out little-to-no punishment. It also highlights -- for victims and for journalists -- the availability of a little-known resource, the U.S.
Albemarle High School joined the ranks of the Obama administration, airport security and the Smithsonian on Wednesday – and not in a good way. Administrators at the Charlottesville, Va., school were given a Jefferson Muzzle award Wednesday following a 2010 spat involving the school’s student newspaper. As the SPLC reported in June, copies of The Revolution were confiscated and destroyed because of an editorial suggesting student athletes be able to opt out of PE class.
Critics sometimes bemoan the "sameness" of programming across the over-the-air radio dial, but for one minute on Thursday, listeners truly will hear exactly the same thing whether they are in Missouri or Maryland or Michigan: The sound of silence. Not the Simon and Garfunkel classic, either.
Last week's celebration of World Press Freedom Day was devoted to the theme of "21st century media," and the central role of students as society's information-gatherers was impossible to ignore -- down to the gavel-to-gavel coverage supplied by student volunteers from Georgetown University. The Student Press Law Center and 39 leading journalism groups from across America joined in urging the delegates to the UNESCO-sponsored event to keep the rights of students at the forefront of the first World Press Freedom Day ever celebrated on United States soil.
While it's uncertain how the American public will get news in the future, and who'll pay the cost of reporting it, it is increasingly clear that the media will rely on unpaid college students not just as trainees but as front-line news gatherers. An exhaustive survey of the media landscape commissioned by the Federal Communications Commission includes among its recommendations that the donor community underwrite "journalism residencies" for new graduates along the model of residencies for newly graduated physicians.
High school journalists are out-of-control monsters, bad citizens whose goal is to promote drug abuse and promiscuous sex, to undermine respect for decent American values, and to destroy the reputation of their school and everyone in it.
A New York college editor who kept up his fight for public records from a hostile student government that threatened him with legal action has won a national First Amendment prize recognizing his tenacity. The Society of Professional Journalists named Bill Matthias the winner of its annual Robert D.G.
Two college journalists at West Virginia's Marshall University have won the Society of Professional Journalists' prestigious "Sunshine Award" for exposing the existence of an off-the-books set of campus police reports separate from the ones made available for public review. The SPJ will recognize Samantha Turley and Marcus Constantino for a series of October 2010 stories in their campus newspaper, The Parthenon, documenting that the Marshall University Police Department selectively withheld some crime reports from a log provided to student journalists. The existence of "off-the-books crimes" came to light as journalists from The Parthenon inquired into widespread rumors about a sexual assault in a campus dorm (a complaint that police ultimately decided they lacked the evidence to pursue). Any report to police of a serious crime such as rape should show up in the daily crime log available for public inspection, but the log provided to The Parthenon made no mention of it. Turley and Constantino will receive their award at SPJ's national convention Sept.
One of the most distressing calls we get on the Student Press Law Center's hotline is some variation of this one: "We came back from summer break and discovered that all the money in our yearbook account is gone, and nobody will tell us where it went." Cash-strapped schools undoubtedly are tempted by any pot of money, even one that is earmarked for a student organization, in their desperation to pay the bills.
As newspaper archives go online, long-forgotten and probably regrettable college escapades are seeing the light of day thanks to the Internet.
