Principals and School Media

What is the role of school administrators in relation to student press? Do student journalists have the same rights as professionals?

Those are just some of the questions likely to be raised at tomorrow's First Amendment on Campus Workshop at Central Washington University in Ellensburg. AWSP was actively involved in discussions this past session over HB1307, a bill that would have removed principal oversight from student media. Although 1307 died this session in Washington, it may be resurrected next year. A similar measure has also been introduced and is pending in the Oregon State Legislature.

More from Ellensburg tomorrow.
