Local students to be featured in New York Times
BRATTLEBORO — Fourth-graders from Green Street School will be featured in the June 30 issue of The New York Times.
The New York Times for Kids is a section of the newspaper that appears in all subscribers and newsstand copies on the last Sunday of each month. Each edition has an opinion page, with opinions from all of the students in one public school fourth-grade class somewhere in the U.S. On June 30, Green Street School's fourth-graders will be featured on the opinion page.
This past May the school was visited by Caitlin Roper, New York Times editor who started the kids section back in 2017, along with professional
photographers. The fourth grade was transformed into a writing studio. Roper spoke with the fourth-graders about newspapers and the difference between reported writing and opinion writing.
Brattleboro's fourth-graders wrote about a variety of topics, ranging from gun violence to the length of the school day.
