Michigan K.I.D.S. and Detroit Newspapers in Education
Who they are
Michigan K.I.D.S. is the non-profit umbrella and fund-raising organization for the educational programming of Detroit Newspapers In Education. The acronym of its name stands for “Knowledge and Information Delivered to Students.” In a time of limited resources, it has become an indispensable source of educational materials for Detroit and Michigan schools. Michigan K.I.D.S., its partners and its sponsors provide special curriculum guides for teachers, themed educational sections for students and classroom posters that brighten and enlighten school instruction. The program also provides delivery of print and electronic newspapers to extend literacy instruction with contemporary texts.
