July 6-8, a group of young people from around Southern California including Long Beach gathered at Media Arts Center San Diego for an intense 3-day Boot Camp in Journalism and Media. With the guidance of adult mentors, the youth produced Blogs, Radio and Video reports on one of three themes: School Discipline, School Meals, and Neighborhood. This is another of those reports.
