Founder and CEO


A new study by Stanford History Education Group shows that students’ digital fluency does not include understanding the news and information they read online.

“The News Literacy Project has been working with educators for the past eight years to teach middle school and high school students how to address the challenges reflected in the Stanford study,” said NLP founder and CEO Alan C. Miller.

“It is more important than ever that the next generation has the tools to become informed and engaged citizens in the nation’s democracy.”
