"Students do not relate to newspapers at all, any more than they would to vinyl records"

That's a quote from one teacher in a recent study:
MORE US teachers are using online news sites in the classroom, leaving behind newspapers that fail to grasp the internet's importance in trying to reach students, a study has found.Fifty-seven per cent of American teachers use internet-based news in the classroom with some frequency, said the study, which was based on a survey of 1262 teachers in years five to 12 in the northern autumn of 2006, and released on Monday by the Carnegie-Knight Task Force on the Future of Journalism Education.
