Officials in one New Jersey school district are reviewing how it has been enforcing a policy requiring the principal to review the high-school newspaper prior to publication; however, some say the rule should be lifted.

Only, at a working newspaper, content scheduled for publication is reviewed by an editor, not the principal, it was noted.
