USA Today becomes second participating news organization


USA Today is the News Literacy Project’s second participating news organization.

The paper has endorsed NLP, will post an internal announcement giving its journalists the opportunity to volunteer in the classroom and will help NLP recruit former USA Today reporters and editors to participate in an after-school program.

“In an era in which there’s a greater quantity of news and information than ever before, it’s critically important to give the members of a new generation the tools they need to assess the quality of that content,” USA Today Editor Ken Paulson said. “The News Literacy Project is the right idea at exactly the right time.”

The New York Times was NLP’s first participating news organization. NLP plans to launch pilots in New York City and Bethesda, Maryland, in February.
