"Any day some story could come to me and my students that would put me in a bad position," said Paul Kandell, a journalism advisor at Palo Alto High School. "Without some security, teachers like me would lose their jobs."
Kandell, who has advised journalism students for 13 years, considers himself fortunate. He said he hasn't had problems regarding story or censorship issues at his school.
