Wilson High Principal ‘Reconsiders’ Prior Review of Newspaper Articles

So perhaps the prior review of articles in Wilson High School’s newspaperisn’t, in fact, so critical to keeping students “safe and protected.”

That, anyhow, was the rationale advanced by Wilson Principal Kimberly Martin after a swell of media attention piled on her decision to review articles in The Beacon — a monthly publication (plus web updates) by Wilson students. “It is my intention to make all decisions based on student learning and the decision of prior review is in line with my personal and professional philosophy as an educator. Keeping students safe and protected are parts of my job that I take very seriously,” said Martin in a statement.
