Student Newspaper to Survive

The Shasta Volcano was declared dead by the principal of Shasta High School, in Redding, Calif., after the student newspaper featured a photo of the American flag burning. An op-ed in the paper discussed freedom of speech, but that did not convince the principal that students had the right to publish material he deemed offensive.

The superintendent of the Shasta Union High School District, however, reversed the decision after meeting with the incoming editor, according to the Student Press Law Center. The newspaper staff will receive guidance from journalists at the local newspaper.
