The Zinn Education Project fills in some of the huge gaps in content and understanding that are left out of much of the U.S. history students learn in our schools. Learning a more honest and inclusive history where they can see themselves makes students excited about learning and and, as a result, they become more critical learners and thinkers. — Sonia Nieto, Amherst, Massachusetts
