We wish you could glimpse into our newsroom: Young D.C. was a beehive Monday. A rising senior at a small private school, taught HTML for updating to three teens from campuses east of the Anacostia River and near RFK Stadium. These four teens would otherwise never work together. Today they know working together productively overrides any differences that might interest demographers, but shouldn't inhibit cooperation. In decades to come they may share a work environment or a voting precinct with the same fine results we witnessed.
Last January, two other teens who hadn't previously met worked on stories about Supreme Court decisions that broadened, then curbed freedom of speech for teens. They met Mary Beth Tinker of Tinker v. Des Moines (1969) and a lawyer who worked on Hazelwood v. Kuhlmeier (1988).
As this week progresses, three teens are writing in the newsroom about HIV education, access to Plan B and the quality of high school fitness programs. A dozen more are working on elements of Young D.C.'s summer issue and relating their progress via email and social media.
