ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich. (AP) — Student journalists at a suburban Detroit high school are upset over what they claim is censorship of their school newspaper.
Staff members of Lake Shore High School's publication, The Shoreline, planned a story about child pornography charges against a former substitute teacher who is the husband of an elementary school principal.
The district ordered the story pulled.
In newspapers distributed Thursday, students substituted a black box accompanied by a statement notifying readers an article had been censored by the Lake Shore administration.
Shoreline editor-in-chief Andrew Wilson tells The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens he felt his readers needed to know.
Superintendent Christopher Loria says the impact the story might have had on the elementary school principal played a role in his decision.
