Here is their own description of what this organization is all about:
“Stories about so-called “fake news” abound, and while the term is bandied about, it is little understood yet widely discussed. Is “fake news” about bias? About disagreements on fundamental principles or arguments? About verifiable falsehoods or perceptions about truths? About generating revenues through attention-seeking headlines and fabricated story lines? As we often say in media literacy, we have questions about the answers. But we can say with confidence that no one should “outsource” their brain for others to decide, nor do we wish to invite censorship or filtering.”
“The News Literacy Project (NLP) is a nonpartisan national education nonprofit that works with educators and journalists to teach middle school and high school students how to sort fact from fiction in the digital age.”
Located in Manchester, NH, The Derryfield School is a private day school for grades 6-12. Students benefit from a challenging academic program, fine and performing arts, competitive athletics, and a wide selection of extracurricular activities.
