Hi Linda,

At my school this term, we explored the idea of taking a print subscription
but the claim has been that students wont touch the papers and in schools,
they generally wont touch them even though they are useful for learning.

I've even tried to push for at least a digital subscription, but that has
been deferred for the time being. The school executive though have been
interested in trying to provide a suitable newspaper subscription and want
to put their two cents in which is a positive thing.

Libraries I feel should provide newspapers as a standard service but its a
matter of promoting them to colleagues and and students and incorporating

In the United States, I am aware of the Newspapers in Education Scheme
provided by major newspapers <http://nieonline.com/chicago/index.cfm> where
they provide heavily discounted or free subscriptions to schools along with
teaching resources. I would like to see it here.

As for papers, *The Australian* tends to win on the quality stakes, but
both the SMH and Tele have their shortcomings as both are aligned to either of
the spectrum (left or right) and have become more extreme.
