ABSTRACT: 

This study assessed the implementation of Republic Act 7079 otherwise known as Campus Journalism Act of 1991 in selected public schools in the Philippines. The researchers used both quantitative and qualitative approach to determine the compliance level of school paper advisers nationwide on the said law.

It was revealed in this study that the law was partially complied. Specifically, in terms of funding the training of campus journalists and  adviser; selection of  advisers and members of the editorial staff; and allocating budget for the production, publication and circulation of the campus paper.This study concluded that the law is toothless to strictly implement its provisions, thus it needs to be reviewed.
