Student Journalists Claim Censorship At School Paper

DETROIT (WWJ) – Student journalists at a St. Clair Shores high school are upset over what they claim is censorship of their school newspaper.
  
Staff members of Lake Shore High School’s publication, The Shoreline, planned a story about child pornography charges against a former substitute teacher who is the husband of an elementary school principal.

The district ordered the story pulled.
  
In newspapers distributed Thursday, students substituted a black box accompanied by a statement notifying readers an article had been censored by the Lake Shore administration.
     
The superintendent says the impact the story might have had on the elementary school principal played a role in his decision.
