NIE provides you with access to your local newspaper during the school year, and in turn, you can share the newspaper with your students, exposing them to what is happening in their local community, nation, and around the world.
Why is this important? Students in schools with NIE programs score higher on standardized tests. Furthermore, today’s students who read the newspaper are tomorrow’s literate, informed, and productive citizens. They are more likely to vote, be civically engaged as adults, and be better-educated consumers.
