Oracle staff members’ press passes. Each student wears a press pass when covering events to separate themselves as student reporters.

“Big Questions, Big Results” is this year’s theme for Scholastic Journalism Week. #Press4education is the topic for this Thursday, Feb. 25. highlighting the importance of scholastic journalism with the Society of Professional Journalists.

The video above showcases students and their opinions regarding Archer’s policies regarding prior restraint and prior review. Archer is a First Amendment Press Freedom Award school, meaning that students have full editorial control over the content published on the Oracle or in the yearbook. A common thread within student’s responses was the “significance” of not having any censorship.
