Newspapers In Education (NIE) promotes learning and literacy by providing print and electronic newspapers with sponsored curriculum to teachers and students throughout Barton and Pawnee County
NIE is a unique way for area schools, businesses, community members and the Tribune to work together in a partnership that benefits all of us now and in the future. Through the use of daily news, editorials, features and even advertising, students at all grade levels can learn math skills, civics, geography, history, and currents events and how they shape our world, all while improving reading and comprehension skills.
The program keeps students informed about what is going on in their communities and encourages local engagement. According to a study conducted for the NAA Foundation, students in schools with NIE programs did 10 percent better than students in schools that had no NIE program. The study found that NIE programs can make a large difference in the quality of student education.
Community participation in the Tribune's NIE program is essential to its success in the classroom.
