The April issue of National Edition, a collection of high school journalism by the American Society of News Editors, features 26 pieces. Four of them – hard news, sports and a movie review — were written by Oakland high school students.
These young Oaklanders covered the shooting of four Oakland police officers, the suspension of Skyline High School principal Al Sye, the induction of Rickey Henderson, an Oakland Tech alum, into the baseball Hall of Fame, and a review of the movie “Watchmen.”
(Isabel Rodriguez-Vega, one of the student-bloggers for The Education Report, co-authored the story about Sye.)
You should check out the stories when you have a chance.
