Rhode Island High School Journalism Day is set to return this Friday, May 19, and we at the Rhode Island Press Association (my volunteer gig as co-president) couldn’t be more excited at the day we have put together.

Last year’s first year in a virtual forum, after years off since the old days of in-person gatherings, was a great success, but we’re expecting the second one to include about three times as many Rhode Island schools, or 30 or more. We’ve heard from so many teachers and administrators that their students are excited to participate.

Welcome to the discussion.

We’ve recently revised our comment policy to help us be more consistent and to be in keeping with our goal to promote a better community conversation. If a comment is deleted, rather than complain about it, simply try again by modifying the verbiage.

Comments that will be deleted include:
  • Those that include threatening, derogatory, obscene, vulgar, lewd, racist, sexist or sexually-oriented language. This includes any name-calling/nicknames of people both on the local and national level.
  • Those with accusations or allegations that can’t be proven, or that try to build a negative narrative about one person or entity over time through a clearly coordinated campaign. If you believe the backstory really needs to be shared, send us a letter to the editor or a story pitch with your name and contact information.
  • Those with outright lies or falsehoods.
Please use the 'Report' link on each comment to let us know if you believe a comment was allowed in error.

What we at The Breeze would truly like to see are comments that add history and context to a story or that use criticism constructively.
