Back to School with Student Press Rights
This free webinar for educators, presented by the News Literacy Project, focuses on how educators can begin their school year teaching issues related to the First Amendment and student press rights.
Thursday, August 3, 2023
5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT
How well do students understand the First Amendment and their own student press rights? And how can educators engage their students in meaningful discussions about these topics?
Hear two perspectives from Adriana Chavira and David Doerr, veteran student journalism advisers and news literacy ambassadors. These educators will discuss how they begin their school year by teaching issues related to the First Amendment and student press rights, with the help of resources from the News Literacy Project.
Chavira, from California, and Doerr, from Texas, will also discuss how the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1988 Hazelwood ruling has eroded student press rights where there are no state laws defining when administrators can intervene in the student publication process, and how this affects topics that students cover in their publications.
