What is Newspapers in Education (NIE)?


How does NIE work?

Our newspaper not only serves as a “news” product, but also is an educational tool. It is the most up-to-date

media available in print. It deals with issues from the “real world.” Newspapers provide something for every

student, increasing motivation, reading skills and test scores. The Glasgow Daily Times offers a fresh look

at events happening in our community today, as well as world events, from a perspective that makes it easy

for children to understand. No textbook can do this as well – or as affordably.



How can teachers use NIE?

Question: How can you, as a concerned educator, promote a more global education for your students?

Answer: Introduce them to The Glasgow Daily Times.

Today’s students are tomorrow’s citizens of the world. From banner headlines to back page roundups, from

comics to classifieds, the newspaper is a living and relevant textbook for our times. Bring The Glasgow

Daily Times to your classroom and introduce your students to the world.

Can others donate to NIE?

The NIE program is a partnership between our area business people, private donations and The

Glasgow Daily Times. Our newspaper is supplied to participating classrooms well below the

suggested retail price. The funding for the program comes from members of the business community

and private donations or sponsorships. These sponsors feel an investment in today’s youth will help

our community while serving as future business investment. Simply stated, a donation to the program

offers media exposure for your business. All contributors are recognized in a collective thank-you ad.

Those who donate at least $100 get their name in the ad, up to $250 get their logo. The more you give

after that your logo is larger. Our thank-you ad, prints one Sunday per month in a full-color page ad.

This spreads the message to the community that you and your business are interested in the education

of our area children.

Thanks to the huge support we have received, we’ve got more and more schools requesting to be

a part of this program. But this growth can only be substantiated with the financial support of

area people and businesses.
