A San Joaquin Valley superintendent in California ,who threatened to fire a high school journalism adviser for refusing to let her preview a story about a student in the porn industry, has reluctantly backed off.
But the superintendent asked for a disclaimer to run with the article noting the district’s disapproval and asserted her right to censor future articles.
The story about the 18-year-old senior — who sells nude videos, models for a porn agency and aspires to be a stripper — runs Friday in the Bruin Voiceand will not include the disclaimer, said Kathi Duffel, an English teacher and award-winning newspaper adviser at Bear Creek High for more three decades. She and her students had planned to publish it this week no matter what the district demanded.
