From the Oakland Tribune, by Alex Katz:
"Journalism class at Skyline High School got more interesting this year, with students forced to handle the business end of their school newspaper while learning the basics of reporting.
After funding for school newspapers was cut last year, students working on the Skyline Oracle will help cover costs the old-fashioned way — by selling subscriptions and advertising.
High school journalism programs across the city are scraping together money to publish papers after State Administrator Randolph Ward decided last year that the deeply-in-debt school district could no longer afford newsprint. An outside grant that paid for school papers last year is running out."
