Student journalists at Bear Creek High School in North Stockton are getting a lesson in the First Amendment after administrators confiscated their newspaper over concerns about a campus safety article quoting school administrators as saying that recent lockdown drills and two reports of weapons on campus revealed poor communication.

The principal of Stockton's Bear Creek High School, Shirley McNichols, stopped distribution of 1,700 copies of the monthly Bruin Voice newspaper last week, saying a front-page article about allegedly outdated safety policies could panic students.

    And this is our great school principals and administrators in action. THEY SHOULD BE FIRED for the suppression of freedom of the press in the1st amendment and join the ranks of the unemployed like ms rosales and their teaching credentials should be permanently revoked!! Don't tell me communism,fascism,marxism,etc. isn't alive and doing well in the schools.

    It appears the safety issue at Bear Creek High is the principal, Shirley McNichols. If there are problems she should fix them. Wouldn't that make the students feel safer? Ms McNichols doesn't understand the purpose of the first amendment to the Constitution concerning a free press. Those students were only pointing out exiting problems with the students' safety. Students, parents, and the district administration should be concerned by the handling of both issues: safety and free speech.
