Football Story Sparks Backlash
An Arkansas high school newspaper was suspended for publishing article about transfer of football players
After students at a high school in Arkansas published a story about the transfer of football players to a rival school, the student paper suffered backlash. The school told them to take the article down, immediately created a new prior review policy, and threatened the adviser with possible firing if she didn't comply. The article was re-published after the school received national criticism, but the policy is still in place.
