The General Idea is a student-led publication dedicated to delivering accurate and balanced information about relevant news and issues of current interest as it applies to students, staff, administration, and community members. The publication strives to increase understanding and awareness and provide differing perspectives for its readers. In practicing professional journalism standards, the staff seeks to cover all sides of every issue fairly and without bias. As student editors make content decisions independently of the school’s staff and administration, the General Idea is considered a forum for student opinion. It is therefore exempt from prior review or restraint in both principle and practice. In the event of an error, The General Idea will publish retractions as they are brought to the attention of the staff.
