As Education Officer, my role will entail raising awareness regarding the fundamental origin of the fight for lasting student press freedom and the precedents that altered the rights of the student press including the influential Hazelwood and Tinker court cases.
I will support New Voices Texas educational efforts by reaching out to fellow student journalists in Texas with the help of my fellow officers. I will educate on the crucial nature of the press and why censorship stifles ethical and honest journalism. I hope to spread a greater understanding of what we as student journalists can do to help fellow student journalists learn about their rights. I will work to spread information about what the New Voices movement is trying to achieve and how we wish to achieve it specifically through legislative action.
I will work with the organizational officers and communications officer to set up a system of communication to facilitate educational posts regarding New Voices and student press rights. I will also work with the Club Development Officer to make sure individual schools have the tools and resources to create their own branches of New Voices in their school communities which can feed into the larger movement as a whole.
