Don't silence our voices: Protect the freedom of the student press

We cannot expect student to magically know the their civic rights and responsibilities upon graduation if we do not give them a voice with which to practice prior to that date. That *is* the purpose of school! This bill will allow an authentic learning experience for students. The only reason to thwart this bill is fear of that which the students might say. But, as FDR famously stated, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself." Allow students to learn! Our country will be better for it.
