Who Needs Journalists Anyway? Part 3

In Newton Mass. School Superintendent Jeffrey M. Young has proposed a budget for the school district which would eliminate 29 teaching positions, dozens of teachers aides, and would leave several elimentary schools without librarians. Included in the cuts will by the position of literacy specialist in four schools, including Day Middle School, which has been publishing the Daytime newspaper for nearly 25 years. If the plan goes through, Robert Provenche, who oversees the production of the newspaper, will become a full time English teacher, and won't be given the time to produce the school's paper. Provenche has proposed a plan which would split his day between the paper and teaching English. But if that doesn't happen, the last day the school paper will publish will be June 8.
