The Star Tribune is seeking to expand awareness of its News in Education program which provides completely free, one-click access to Star Tribune content to all school districts in Minnesota. The aim of this program is to build and support news literacy skills in young and diverse audiences.

Ken Lawrence, Star Tribune education audience development manager, says, "We're very proud to roll out this expanded version of News in Education to provide the work of Minnesota's largest newsroom to schools across the state easily and at no cost. The opportunity to raise levels of news literacy in the next generation is a critical step to creating an informed citizenry." 

The News in Education program also offers Materials for Educators, including a webinar series on topics such as Civil Discourse and What Makes Credible News Credible?

If you would like to work with Ken to set up access for your school district, you can contact him at or call 612-916-1173.
