A recent study by the Knight Foundation found that high school students know little about the First Amendment — 49 percent say newspapers should not be able to publish stories without government approval, 75 percent think flag burning is illegal, and nearly 50 percent believe the government can censor the Internet. In response, the Knight Foundation has launched a Web site, Future of the First Amendment, to promote First Amendment awareness and journalism teaching among students.
