About Newspapers In Education

Newspapers in Education Mission Statement

As a vital part of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and its values, it is the goal of Newspapers in Education to develop, encourage and support the use of the newspaper as a teaching resource for promoting literacy, a life-long love of learning and community and global perspectives. Newspapers in Education is grounded in the belief that use of the newspaper is an essential element in the formation of citizenship.

Newspapers in Education provides teachers with FREE supplemental teaching materials to help make their use of the newspaper in the classroom easy, convenient and effective for students. Newspapers are an influential and integral part of our society. Freedom of the press is guaranteed under the Constitution. They are more timely than textbooks since they are updated daily and can keep students informed on current events. Newspapers bridge the gap between the classroom and the “real” world. Students learn life skills, make career decisions and become more motivated to learn by using the newspaper in the classroom.
