Students Push Back Against Censorship
Vermont high school students use state law to win censorship dispute
Student journalists at Burlington High School in Vermont successfully fight back against censorship after the school shut down an article about an Agency of Education investigation into the school's director of guidance. The school removed the article and reimplemented a previous prior review policy, prompting the students to maintain links to the story on social media and contact local news stations. Facing mounting pressure, the school reversed the prior review policy.
