The Chronicle, on the editorial page, criticized Pleasant Hill’s College Park High School and its principal, Barbara Oaks, for removing a name from a controversial story in the student newspaper and reassigning the paper’s adviser to non-newspaper duties next year. The controversy emerged publicly last week in the Contra Costa Times. The Chronicle concludes the editorial by saying, “More compelling than any textbook chapter on the Bill of Rights, is the message that these students are being sent: Even today, censorship and restrictions on free speech are a continuing battle.”
