Kathleen Parker champions the News Literacy Project

Updates


In a widely syndicated column published today, Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker calls the News Literacy Project a leader in the “growing news literacy movement aimed at teaching young people how to think critically and judge the quality of information.” Parker recently joined the NLP board.

Her column underscores the critical need for the public to seek out credible information to assure the health of America’s democracy.

“Without a well-informed public, you get what we have: a culture that rewards ignorance and treats discourse as a blood sport,” Parker wrote. “News literacy programs provide some hope at least for a more sophisticated consumer. It’s a modest start, but learning to read critically is no less important than reading itself.”
