Mark Briggs in Journalism 2.0 suggests it might not be attractive any longer to teach print in journalism school.
Reasons: print's decline, online's rise, the cost of producing a school paper and the futility of the exercise in the long run.
Interesting idea. Here are a couple of others: At its heart all journalism depends on writing. Is it sufficient to teach writing for online, when it's clear there are differences in print and online reading traits? Second: Print isn't disappearing. It's getting smaller, but it's not going to be smaller than other media locally for at least a dozen years, so why steer students away from the largest (if getting smaller) employer?
