Note that I differentiate between the print newspaper and journalism. Journalism is a practice; newspapers are a delivery mechanism.
Colleges ought to be focusing on teaching journalism and doing so in an appropriate manner which will best prepare students for life in the post-university “real world”. Teaching students how to produce a print newspaper is teaching them to be obsolete. Students should be learning electronic distribution through modern content management systems.
