Zinn Education Project News
Since launching the Zinn Education Project eight years ago, we have been encouraged by the passion and determination of teachers to bring people's history to the classroom, and by how students have responded to this teaching. As one 8th-grade student remarked: 

History isn't so much about what happened in the past. It's about how to change the future.

We agree. And now, 60,000 Zinn Education Project teachers are helping millions of students to uncover hidden history and think critically about our world. Suzanne Arthur, a high school social studies teacher in Salt Lake City, Utah wrote:

DONATE TODAY to help us reach thousands more teachers and millions more students. We rely on the financial support of individuals each year to provide the resources to teach outside the textbook.

Muslims as an integral part of the fabric of progressive movements in the United States----and U.S. life in general? He gets that right. But the quote drips with Islamophobia. Continue reading.
