When I first met Brock Doemel, and we discussed the situation he and the North Star found themselves in as a result of his article on Hans Nelson, I asked him what his goal would be if he could have anything come of this. He told me:
“I would want all our writers to be able to go back to the way it was,” he said. ” I want them to let us do (the North Star) without school censoring… I want Jason’s job to be safe. I want a free student press at our school.”
It looks like he got it. The district released a statement about 10 minutes ago that you can read in its entirety below.
Honestly, I’m not 100 percent sure on every twist and turn in this, but I absolutely give credit where credit is due: The District appears to be moving in the right direction on this.
