Journalism Schools Living in the Past?

Jeff Jarvis looks at how journalism schools are handling the Web in their curriculum in a piece titled As J-Schools Go… Reviewing some recent news about the Columbia School of Journalism, he asks:

“If anyone should be trying to learn how to successfully and creatively take a print brand and product online, shouldn’t it be a journalism school?”

Among his conclusions:

“… some in the trade do believe their classical values and standards are being threatened. Personally, I see no such threat; I see opportunity to expand journalism and update the standards, and I see the public helping to enforce them.”
