Welcome to Newspapers in Education!

Newspapers in Education is a program that promotes literacy through the use of the newspaper as an instructional aid in the classroom. The Portales News-Tribune partners with educators and local businesses to provide classroom copies for local and area teachers to use as a teaching tool at no cost to the schools or the teachers. We can help diminish the battle of illiteracy one classroom at a time.

For more information or to order classroom copies or curriculum guides e-mail Lynn Berry at lberry@cnjonline.com or call 575-769-1996.
