What is Newspapers In Education?
The mission of Newspaper In Education and College Readership at the Journal and Courier is to prepare today’s students to become tomorrow’s literate leaders. This goal is accomplished by teaching educators how to use newspapers as a learning resource, and providing students with daily newspapers to hone academic, real-world and character skills. We support teachers’ efforts and honor each patron’s generosity, as we work to create informed citizens who understand the impact of local, national and international events on their lives.

Newspaper in Education is a program that embraces:

the newspaper industry
participating school systems
generous corporate, business, organizational, and individual sponsors
This partnership allows educators to use newspapers as real-time textbooks to teach:

Language Arts, Math and Science
Character Education, Citizenship and Current Events
Life Skills, Literacy, and Critical Thinking
Through newspaper use in the classroom, students become informed citizens who are aware of local interests, national issues, and international events. Student news-readers develop lifelong habits that serve them long after they leave the classroom to become tomorrow’s consumers and workforce.

The Value Of Your Support

Through our NIE program, teachers are able to order classroom subscriptions of the Journal and Courier at a reduced rate. Because of budgetary concerns, many teachers request financial help from patrons who will offset the cost of school-year newspaper accounts.

This is where YOU make the difference as a valuable member of this cooperative venture! One hundred percent of your tax deductible donation supplies Greater Lafayette’s teachers and students with classroom newspapers. Any amount is graciously accepted, greatly appreciated, and contributes to a lifetime of literacy!

What is College Readership?

College Readership is a program that continues the mission of NIE, by offering daily newspapers to college students who developed news-reading habits during their days in grades K-12.
