High school newspapers becoming rare on New York City campuses

May 28, 2013
Officials say budget cuts and greater focus on core academics have led many schools to cut back on publishing.

Fewer than one in eight of the public high schools in New York City reports having a newspaper or print journalism class, according to an informal survey by city education officials. The New York Times reports that many of these newspapers have been reduced to publishing a few times a year because of shrinking staffs, budget cuts and a greater focus on core academic subjects. Some no longer come out in print at all, existing only as online papers or as scaled-down news blogs.
