The Telegraph Herald Newspaper in Education program promotes and increases our children's literacy by using the newspaper as a teaching tool in the classroom. NIE is a unique way for schools, businesses, community members and the local newspaper to work together in a partnership that benefits us all - now and in the future.
The NIE program continues to grow as our educators face budget cuts causing shortages of necessary classroom materials. The Telegraph Herald meets those needs by providing the newspaper - a living textbook to schools in the tri-state area.
Continue to check the NIE website weekly as events, curriculum ideas and other NIE related activities will be posted. Enjoy your newspaper!
