Guide offers strategies for dealing with censorship
"School-enforced restrictions on coverage, demands from administrators for prior approval of stories and outright censorship of student work are everyday occurrences at many schools across the country." That statement from page 3 of "Press Freedom in Practice: A Manual for Student Media Advisers on Responding to Censorship" is as true today as it was when the guide was written for and published by the NAA Foundation.
Authored by John Bowen and Mark Goodman, the 34-page manual is filled with "advice, guidance and thoughtful discussion to those media advisers striving to find the right path." The guide features "experiences shared by many who have spent years on the front lines and ‘lived to tell the tales.' " If you are in search of "some tested techniques for overcoming censorship," download this free resource here.
