What is NIE?

Newspapers in Education (NIE) is an exciting interactive program that engages students in learning by providing them with daily access to the Austin American-Statesman . NIE is a worldwide effort in which school textbooks and teaching materials are supplemented with the use of the local newspaper.

The NIE program is designed to make reading newspapers a fun and beneficial learning experience.

This is accomplished everyday by providing a "living textbook" in a format that is less intimidating and more appealing to students.


This year teachers will receive a direct link to the Statesman via email Monday through Friday. This email will provide access to the eEdition without login. Teachers may also reach the login page at this link:
