Reaching Generation Next
In 1997, high school journalism in the Washington, D.C., was dead. Not a single public high school in the city published a newspaper that year. When The Washington Post discovered this crisis, they embarked on a program to reintroduce journalism and newspapers to the city's high schools. What came to be called the Young Journalists Development Program was born.
By 2003, the program operated 21 high school journalism programs and reached beyond the city into its diverse suburbs.
In an effort to show how they did it, the Post put together "Reaching Generation Next: A News Media Guide to Creating Successful High School Partnerships." Written by Lisa Frazier Page, the book is a how-to for editors, newspaper advisers and principals to come together to create good scholastic journalists.
