Newspapers In Education
What is NIE?
NIE, or Newspapers in Education, is an international program which has been in existence for more than 60 years. The main purpose of the program is to promote literacy by using the newspaper as a teaching tool. But, in our eyes, the more important purpose is to familiarize young adults with the resources available to them inside their local newspaper.
Why a newspaper?
A local newspaper is the most comprehensive resource for news and information about the world, state, and city you live in – 365 days a year! It is fresh, up-to-date, practical, and helps bridge the gap between the textbook and the real world. The more information you have about the community you live in, the more it can help you determine and guide your own destiny.

Your local newspaper, The Journal Times, can provide you tools for living. Anything you want to know about the community you live in can be found right inside your local newspaper-every day of the week! Things like:
