Too Many Schools Lack a Student Newspaper. When Schools Reopen, However They Reopen, Every School Should Have One

Every day, it becomes increasingly clear that the road to societal reforms is steep and often crumbling. I’d like to suggest one simple action we can take right now that will help pave the way for a more solid, stable future: When students return to school, however they return to school, everyone should have some kind of student newspaper.

Private universities vs. student journalists: How to pressure your university for access 

University administrators and independent student journalists often don’t get along. Because private universities are not necessarily subject to open records laws, often the only way to get information about the university is to ask— leaving the fate of student journalists in the hands of media relations specialists who can be uncooperative. And when a university refuses to work with its student newspaper, the entire university community is harmed.
