What is NIE?
NIE is an acronym for Newspapers in Education, a worldwide effort in
which school textbooks and teaching materials are supplemented with
the use of the local newspaper. The habit of reading a newspaper provides
the necessary practice to build reading and writing skills and develop
an interest in the welfare of one's community--valuable skills and attitudes
to carry students through life.
