    Can anyone help me with my question that I posted. I would greatly appreciate it, thanks in advance.

  • journalism - ,

    Which interests you most -- city government, schools, sports? Which do you know the most about?

  • journalism - ,

    I am a little interested in the schools.

  • journalism - ,

    OK. You should probably choose the school beat.

    1. What are the biggest issues in your local schools?

    2. Who would be your most important sources for school information?

    Bullying

    The superintendent

  • journalism - ,

    Certainly, bullying is one problem. Other common problems in schools are lack of money, teacher-layoffs, cutting of programs, and overcrowding.

    The superintendent is an important contact. Principals and school board president should also be considered.

    BobPursley just reminded me that state academic standards are also a big issue for most schools.

  • journalism - ,

    So I should focus and research on the school's budget?

  • journalism - ,

    No. You need to discuss the most important issues. I suggest you use at least three issues.
