REDDING, Calif. A high school principal in Redding, Calif., says there will be no student newspaper next year after its front page featured a photo of a burning American flag.
Shasta High School Principal Milan Woollard says the latest issue of the student-run Volcano newspaper was embarrassing and that the paper is finished.
The newspaper included an editorial supporting flag burning, in addition to the photograph of a student setting the flag ablaze. Newspaper faculty adviser Judy Champagne says students added the editorial and photo at the last minute and that it was "bad journalism."
Woollard says funds are tight and school officials had been considering eliminating the paper before it published the image.
