Scrutiny for the Student Press?

Administrators at the Louisiana public university directed editors of the weekly student newspaper, the Gramblinite, to suspend publication this month, citing a range of reasons. Grambling officials said that the newspaper was rife with errors and misspellings and that advertisers and local groups had complained about its lack of professionalism, and they cited a sports article that was plagiarized in large part from a local newspaper.


But late Thursday, administrators reportedly lifted their suspension of the publication, after reaching an agreement with the students that will require the newspaper’s adviser to edit each article for grammar and style before it appears. —Scrutiny for the Student Press? (Inside Higher Ed)

It’s stories like this that make me really, really, really appreciate the students who run — and edit! — our paper (for which I am the adviser).
