What can $115/semester or $200/school year do?
• provides newspapers for each student in one classroom, one day per week, for one semester or a year (your choice).
"I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand." NIE believes this proverb is a key to teaching our children. Teachers who have worked with us have eagerly agreed. Communities depend on schools to help provide a literate work force, strong leaders and responsible and involved citizens. Reading the newspaper plays an integral role in developing students into such citizens. Unfortunately, not all children have the same resources. Many times the only exposure to the newspaper is the one they receive in the classroom.
