Parent gets in on the action in Everett

On the heels of letters from WJEA President Kathy Schrier and the students of The Free Stehekin to the Everett Herald regarding the Everett School District's policy of prior review, here is another letter taking the district to task -- this time, from a parent:

Apparently the district does not trust these students, or their advisers, to use their heads and hearts when making editorial decisions. These are young people on the cusp of adulthood who deserve the opportunity to handle the responsibility of publishing their own newspapers and literary magazines.

Hopefully, all this pressure results in some action for the district, which has been strangely quiet on this whole situation.
