Jack Rintoul, TKC editor-in-chief, and Mitch Eden, TKC adviser, testified, Wed., Feb. 6 in Jefferson City in favor of the Cronkite New Voices Act. The New Voices Act overturns Hazelwood School District v. Kuhlmeier which stated school administrators can exercise prior review on school-sponsored expression. New Voices would protect student journalists from administrative censorship and allow them to report freely. New Voices has already passed in fourteen other states.

“It’s common sense to give students the chance to pursue stories they wish to pursue,” Rintoul said. “It’s important to give students the same rights they are going to have after they leave school. If you look at Supreme Court cases like Tinker v. Des Moines, they didn’t lose their constitutional rights at the school house gate. I think in the state where Hazelwood v. Kuhlmeier began, it should be overturned and students should be allowed to report and cover whatever they want because when you give them that responsibility, they will act on it rather than hurting the school.”
