High school students will soon be able to voice their opinions about important social issues in a new national magazine.
Set to debut next month Sept, 360 Degrees (subtitled "The magazine with every angle"), will publish the writing, artwork, and photography of adolescent contributors.
"No sassy editorials, no beauty-pageant babble, no condescending overtones--just real-life experiences from a diverse group of teenagers," the editors promise in the premiere issue.
An independent, nonprofit publication, 360 Degrees will be produced three times during the school year. Each issue will focus on a specific social issue, the first one being racism, and will include submission and deadline information.
The magazine is free to schools. Individual subscriptions cost $10. Further information is available at (202) 628-1836 or by writing 360 Degrees Exchange, P.O. Box 25356, Washington, D.C. 20007.
A journal that follows the for-profit segment of the education field will soon expand and change its name.
Launched in 1993, The Education Investor will become The Education Industry Report next month to reflect the acquisition of 50 percent of the journal's publisher, Education Investing Inc., by Boston-based EduVentures Inc.
Featuring stories about the companies, individuals, and government activities that fuel the for-profit education sector, the Report will also follow the public stocks and financial performance of companies involved in the education industry.
The newsletter will be published 15 times a year. Subscriptions are $249, and discounts are available.
More information is available by calling (612) 259-4006 or writing Education Investing Inc., P.O. Box 6234, St. Cloud, Minn. 56302.
