LOCAL SCHOOL NEWS AND INFO
The Petaluma Argus Courier in EducationWe are a community service for local educators. Our mission is to increase literacy, provide curriculum support and encourage readership. We are committed to providing teachers with economical teaching vehicles and innovative curriculum materials to help students develop necessary academic skills and become informed and involved citizens.
Why?Literacy experts believe that adults with low literacy skills lack a sufficient foundation of the basic skills to function successfully in our society. By providing schools with newspapers we can help prevent illiteracy at a time when young people have a support system of educators in place. Newspapers open the world to them and give them a chance to succeed.
Did you know?The Petaluma Argus Courier in Education is made possible by readers who donate their papers during their vacation.
