Tennessee school censors student newspaper.

Shocking.  The censored article was about birth control.

From Tennessee Independent Media Center:

Students at Oak Ridge High School were apparently unaware that birth control is a forbidden subject. The latest issue of the student newspaper - which featured an informative article on the subject - has been censored by school officials. All 1,800 copies of the newspaper have been seized. The Oak Leaf, the monthly school newspaper written and produced by students at Oak Ridge High School, wasn't distributed Wednesday because of one particular article and some of its content dealing with sex and birth control methods, according to the paper's editor-in-chief.

According to advocatesforyouth.org, in terms of teen pregnancy Tennessee is ranked #41 in the country.  (50 being the highest.)
