CNN Student News -- Turner Learning's classroom network, which competes with
Primedia Inc.'s Channel One -- backed down from a plan to sell paid
sponsorships.

Cable News Network wouldn't rule out future sponsorships for the education
channel.

'While several companies have expressed interest in partnering with Turner
Learning, we have put any sponsorship considerations on hold pending further
discussion internally and with teachers, parents and education associations,'
CNN said in a prepared statement.
