High School Editors Will Be Honored by ACLU
Philly.com reports that the student editors at Neshaminy High School will be honored by the ACLU of Pennsylvania.
Members of Neshaminy’s editorial board voted last October to stop using Redskin, the name of the school mascot, in all stories and advertisements in the paper because they felt it was racially insensitive. A lengthy dispute with district administrators ensued. Ultimately, the school board voted in June to allow students to remove Redskin from news stories but not editorials or opinion columns.
They’ll be honored at a dinner Oct.8 at the National Museum of American Jewish History.
