Press Censorship There are many kinds of censorship within our school system. Such as press Censorship, we aren’t aloud to express freely among our schools newspaper nor yearbook. I believe that we should be able to write anything that the student wants to see on the newspaper. Equivalent to the yearbook, students should be able to have the right tosay whatever they want for a SENIOR quote. Freedom of the press ensures Americans great freedom of choice in what they can read and see. This should also apply to our community public schools, we should be given the right inside school just as much as outside.
Its like a fellow classmate said today in class, “Its like we are not in America anymore when we step onto school grounds.” I believe in this point that he made because it is just like that. Our freedoms are limited in a way to where we can barely express ourselves within the school newspapers and yearbook. One type of publication that has never been given First Amendment protection is obscenity. This is one thing that I can agree with; certain things are absolutely immoral and inappropriate, such as pornography and foul language to an extent. However, the rules and regulations of our schools newspaper and yearbook need to be a little more just, to fit our rights of press.
I would like our school to be among the first to allow the students almost every right to print whatever they would like to write about. But, not every freedom is absolute… If they were, our school system would be in total chaos.
