About Us

Welcome, teachers and students! Please join us in the world of Newspaper In Education. We have a valuable and fun educational program to share with you.


Area students and teachers are reading, thinking, and writing with the daily newspaper.


We have a well-rounded, educational program that supports the work of educators with
newspaper subscriptions, a student writing column, curriculum materials, and an art contest.


Throughout the entire year, NIE is a vital presence in area schools. The regular program runs from August to May. During summer school, teachers may also order newspapers for use with students.


We operate in a seven county area in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia.


Our goals are:

  • To promote good citizenship and active participation in our democracy.
  • To assist in the development of academic skills.
  • To develop the next generation of newspaper readers.


Teachers may order newspapers which are used to teach students of varying ages and abilities. The cost for student newspapers is 20¢ per copy.  Limited sponsorship is available.  Email the NIE office today at nie@timesnews.net and we will be glad to help you enroll in Newspaper In Education!
