The Boston Globe's All-New
News in Education
We're giving education a local angle.
Introducing The Boston Globe's News in Education, a new and improved version of the Globe's local education program that provides digital subscriptions, classroom lessons and educational materials at no cost to teachers and students through the generosity of Vacation Donation contributors, private donors and corporate sponsors. Through its Vacation Donation program, the Globe has been an educational partner with schools throughout New England for more than 30 years.
The Globe's new NIE program has something for everyone. Teachers can download lessons developed by local teachers that use Globe articles and follow Massachusetts Common Core State Standards. NIE also offers lots of fun activities for classroom instruction, from cartoons and videos to news quizzes and webcasts.
