Auther : By: Dr. Nabil A. Jerdi and Dr. Mohammed Moadh

This study aims to determine the future outlook of higher secondary (HS) and college students with regard to reading daily newspapers in Kuwait, where local news are presented in detail and are low cost in addition to easy readability.

The study shows that students aged 12–24 need to be encouraged to read, analyze and comprehend newspapers. Tools of the study were a questionnaire and interviews and the random sample included 200 students. The study results showed that 113 students (65.5%) read daily newspapers regularly, 78 (39%) read them occasionally and 9 (4.5%) hardly read newspapers. This last group justified their negligence to reading newspapers for reasons such as newspapers contents never arise to their interest, the quality of papers are not attractive and lack of time. As for reading priorities, the study indicates that local news achieved 57.5% , international news 51.5%, Arab news 14.5% and Gulf news 7.5% respectively.

Regarding access, 58.5% of the sample indicated that they obtain daily newspaper via subscription, 38% buy them, 3.5% read them at diwaniyas, 3% in college or school libraries, 5% read them at work and 2.5% at coffee shops or public libraries.

Analysis of the data collected strongly suggests that:

  1. Pupils and students should form the habit of reading newspapers from the very beginning. Therefore, primary, intermediate and secondary schools should inculcate and encourage students to acclimatize reading newspapers.

Teachers can use newspapers to demonstrate true to life situations. Thus infusing in their pupils the habit of free reading and widening their scope of information via printed media.
