SPJ Launches “Journalism Education Series”

From their release:

    The Society of Professional Journalists, one of the nation’s largest and oldest journalism advocacy organizations, has developed a unique, new educational service to help people understand the tenets of responsible journalism and the profound importance of a free press.

    SPJ’s Journalism Education Series, a first-of-its-kind initiative, will launch early next year under the auspices of the Society’s new Speakers Bureau. The series and the bureau aim to inform the general public about some of the core principles of good journalism, the standards under which respectable news organizations operate and the challenges journalists often confront when gathering the news. The series will focus on SPJ’s core missions, including the free flow of public information, journalism ethics and the importance of diversity in the news-gathering process.
