Press Freedom in Practice
A Manual for Advisers Responding to Censorship
Published in 2006, but remains relevant today


The negative effects of censorship on students, advisers and communities are very real. The SPLC publication, Press Freedom in Practice, A Manual for Student Media Advisers on Responding to Censorship, counters that impact in two ways:

  • By providing real-life examples of advisers and students avoiding or overcoming censorship.
  • By offering sound educational arguments to persuade censor-prone school administrators that there is a better way. Download Press Freedom in Practice.
