High School Journalists Take a Crash Course in Newspaper Economics
Posted: 12/3/2012 | By: Lynh Bui | The Washington Post
Consuming news and information has been easier than ever for a generation of kids with e-readers, smartphones, tablets and laptops at their fingertips. But for some Montgomery County students, nothing beats an old-fashioned print newspaper.
Journalism students who produce the Tattler,
the Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School newspaper, have been feverishly
fundraising to resurrect the print version of their publication after
going on hiatus in mid-October. They say they are dedicated to keeping
what the school claims is the longest-running student newspaper in
Montgomery County going — not just online, but also in ink on paper.
