Abstract

Newspapers around the world are used as a commodity to attain more and more information about the surroundings. On one hand we acquire the global perspective of the happenings around us while on the other hand the newspaper as well seems to play an important role for educational purposes amongst students. Although schools remain main source of education and learning but cognition and awareness development are associated with the extra-curricular activities of a young learner. In this regard the researcher has adopted the topic of “role of newspaper in education”, to find out according to the people of Karachi, the extent to which the newspapers quench the educational need of the students and what more can be done to achieve the goal. The research is carried out with the help of a survey of almost 100 people in Karachi, especially from those women whose children go to school. The research suggests that although very few people get to read the newspaper at hone, but the newspapers hold great importance in the context of enhancing the children’s capabilities.
