What is NIE?
Newspapers In Education (NIE) is an exciting interactive program that engages students in learning by providing teachers access to the Austin American-Statesman ePaper for use in their classroom. The NIE program is designed to make reading newspapers a fun and beneficial learning experience.
NIE is a worldwide effort in which school textbooks and teacher materials are supplemented with the use of the local newspaper. This is accomplished everyday by providing a “living textbook” in a format that is less intimidating and more appealing to students.
Six teenagers under 18 are running for governor in Kansas, and adults in the legislature aren't pleased. The first teen candidate, Jack Bergeson, said his interest in running was sparked when he realized Kansas had no laws about who could run for governor. Five other teens have since joined in the race. A state representative has introduced a bill that would ban anyone too young to vote from running for governor. But, the bill will not affect this year’s election.
