Houston Community College's The Egalitarian - DEMAND A CHANGE!
This petition made change with 39 supporters!
The Egalitarian should be a means of intellectual conversation and spark knowledge among readers, while pushing readers to learn and exchange in new ideas.
We, as students and supporters of Houston Community College, must challenge the conventions and demand The Egalitarian include journalistic integrity, accuracy of content, less vulgarity, and a more diverse range of topics as well as contributing writers!
There should be more diversity in regards to topics/articles within The Egalitarian. The Egalitarian needs to give a voice to all students of various backgrounds--in doing so The Egalitarian can grow in readership and spark knowledge as well as discourse among students.
Many students are not familiar with The Egalitarian, and those who are familiar with The Egalitarian don't prefer to read it, due to the lack of proper/relevant information and profane language as well as grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors found within many articles' text.
The Egalitarian is not a credible source for students! Many students who do wish to contribute to the publication in order to improve it are constantly deterred by the publication's staff. Hence this petition is a chance to create a positive change within our community!
Houston Community College students need to have a sense that The Egalitarian is a newspaper for the students, run by students!
FYI: Tax-payer money funds The Egalitarian!
When compared to other student-run college media/newspapers, such as San Jacinto Community College's San Jactino Times, The Egalitarian is a serious mockery of Houston Community College!

As quoted by Margaret Mead, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”
