Student journalists at Palo Alto High School found themselves in the national spotlight when they decided to take an insider's look at stories of rape within their own school. The article in "Verde," Palo Alto's student magazine, tells the story of two students who say they were raped while drunk. We'll talk with the student journalists about what they call the "rape culture" in high school and beyond, which they say blames and silences victims.
