This week, March 4-8, is Newspapers in Education Week. The purpose of NIE week (cosponsored by the American Newspaper Publishers Association Foundation and the International Reading Association) is to encourage the use of newspapers in the classroom and as a means of improving students' reading skills. Beginning today, and throughout this week, we'll be highlighting Monitor stories of special interest to young readers, either as a basis for classroom study and discussion, or for individual enjoyment. Each story carries a logo inviting students and teachers to ``Cut It Out.''
For today, we recommend:
Palestinians in Kuwait are lying low. Page 1
Why shortwave radios are in short supply. Page 9
An ancient Chinese manual on `The Art of War' is hot reading today. Page 13
Can America bring a ``new world order'' to the Gulf? Page 18
