More than 11,000 teachers signed up to access people’s history lessons in 2022, bringing our full registration at the Zinn Education Project to more than 151,000 teachers from every state in the country.
No wonder the right-wing is upset.
Young people are learning to read the news with a critical eye, to assess current events through the lens of history, and to see through red-baiting and fear-mongering scare tactics.
Read highlights from our work in 2022 and help us provide more teachers with resources to teach outside the textbook in 2023.
So far in 2022, we have:
- Organized a national day of action to protest the wave of right-wing attacks on teaching
- Offered monthly “Teach the Black Freedom Struggle” online classes
- Hosted 100 Teaching for Black Lives Teacher Study Groups, bringing our total to 238 in 38 states
- Produced the first-ever national report on K–12 curriculum standards on Reconstruction as part of our Teach Reconstruction Campaign
- Developed new lessons on Reconstruction, Rosa Parks, and voting rights
- Launched a people’s history teacher leadership fellowship named for education activists C. J. Prentiss and Michael Charney
The right-wing wants to force educators to teach only conservative “patriotic” narratives.
Please donate so that we can defend teachers’ right to teach people’s history in this perilous time.
