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

    I am a little interested in the schools.

    OK. You should probably choose the school beat.

    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.
