OC Weekly Editor Joins Chapman University Faculty Ranks

Gustavo Arellano has a solid piece today in the OC Weekly about the civil unrest in his hometown, titled “Anaheim’s Tragic Kingdom.” But he’s also in the news for another reason.

Per an item in the OC Register, the OC Weekly editor will be teaching journalism this fall at his Alma Mater Chapman University:

Arellano, known for his award-winning “¡Ask a Mexican!” column, will teach a journalism class for staffers of The Panther student newspaper… He has taught classes in the Department of Chicano and Chicana Studies at Cal State Fullerton for the past two years and previously taught at UC Irvine and UCLA.

The only problem FishbowlLA has with the OC Register report is this subsequent quote from Arellano – “Essentially, I’m there for the day-to-day operations to make sure that students are doing a good job and that they don’t get themselves into trouble.” Because isn’t a sure sign that student journalists are doing a good job the very notion that they get in trouble… with administrators, parents and others?
