Newspapers in Education Week 2023

March 01, 2023

Newspapers in Education Week is celebrated every year during the first full week of March and this year it will be marked from March 6 to 10. Newspapers in Education (NiE) is a `Young Reader Development' initiative that involves the use of newspapers in schools for purposes of improving literacy and developing a reading culture amongst children. During this week, several different events are held in schools by educators to use newspapers in classrooms. Numerous newspapers participate in this program by providing newspapers and other resources to local schools and helping organize events and activities for the same.

In the early 21st Century, the world's leading newspapers began offering online editions of their publications. Although some newspaper publishers charged readers for access to their web versions, many made them available for free in the hopes that advertising revenue, combined with cheaper printing and distribution expenses, would cover the loss of subscription rates. Newspapers, as we know them today, are abundant sources of information that bring us news from all over the world and across a wide array of topics and industries. Whether you read a physical copy or a digital website, newspapers are still a vital part of our lives. Newspapers in Education Week emphasizes this power of the newspaper and aims to instill a habit of reading into children while they are young. Through different activities and events, this week educates children on the many benefits of newspapers.

One-third of Americans rely on social media channels for news. Consumers find newspaper ads to be more trustworthy than some other channels.
