Simon Introduces Student Rights Bill
Assemblywoman Donna Simon introduced a bill on December 17 that provides protection for student journalists in public high schools and public universities to exercise their First Amendment Rights. Bill A4912 also protects teachers and advisers from administrative discipline for supporting their students.
The Garden State Scholastic Press Association has been at the forefront of this legislation and will continue to work towards its passage. For information more on this bill, see this article from the Student Press Law Center.
We thank Assemblywoman Simon for sponsoring the bill.
