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, curriculum materials, presentations, contests, etc.


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 skill.
  • 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 15¢ per copy.  Teachers may recruit their own sponsor or provide us with the contact information and we will contact the potential business sponsor about sponsoring their classroom.  Email the NIE office today at nie@timesnews.net and we will be glad to help you enroll in Newspaper In Education!
