Free speech issues at schools

Here's a piece about Tri-State University's (Fort Wayne, Indiana) new policy that faculty and students can't speak with the press without the university's permission. Usually this is standard fare for employees of a school, like faculty, but very unusual to include students in this mix.

On her blog, Jennifer wrote a post about a high school in New Jersey that has ordered (or risk suspension) its students to take down any online journals or profiles they have on the Internet.

Thanks - edit is made. I am humbled - after correcting this error on hundreds of papers, you would think I would never commit one of my biggest pet peeves ... sigh
