Robertson School statement on House Bill 36

Jan 31, 2020

Posted in: News

The faculty and staff at Virginia Commonwealth University's Robertson School of Media and Culture fully support House Bill 36, which guarantees the right to freedom of speech and the press in Virginia public middle schools, high schools and higher education institutions, and would provide protections to journalism advisers. We believe the affirmation in this bill that these constitutional rights apply to students, professional journalists, and journalism advisers, is particularly important at a time when journalism is under attack from some quarters.
