What is NIE?
NIE began at The New York Times in the 1930s. Realizing a newspaper holds current events, New York City schools social studies teachers submitted an idea to The New York Times. They asked that newspapers be delivered to their schools in bundles. The students then would be learning news events from the most current textbook.

Throughout the years, the concept of newspapers in the classroom spread among newspapers across the country. The Newspaper-In-Education program is being used in various educational settings such as prisons, adult literacy centers and hospital-based learning programs...far beyond the traditional classroom setting.

NIE has become an effective and useful tool over the decades in teaching critical reading as well as, aiding students and citizens in determing their own destinies in a democratic society.
