CNN Newsource donates content for education

It’s our aim to assist colleges, universities and secondary schools to train future journalism professionals by providing them with access to material leveraged by hundreds of local news-producing television stations. Schools can add realism to the classroom by featuring CNN material in student-produced newscasts for campus channels and other non-commercial stations.
