People’s History Lessons Are

Reaching More Classrooms

No wonder the right is upset.

More than 10,000 teachers signed up to access people’s history lessons in 2023, bringing our full registration at the Zinn Education Project to more than 160,000 teachers from every state in the country.

This means that 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 2023 — our 15th anniversary — and help us provide more teachers with resources to teach outside the textbook in 2024.

In 2023, we:

  • Organized a national day of action to protest the wave of attacks on teaching truthfully — with dozens of groups, including the National Education Association; Teach Rock; GLSEN; Red, Wine, & Blue; Who We Are Project; Learning for Justice; and more

  • Developed and updated lessons on Reconstruction, environmental justice, and labor

  • Offered monthly “Teach the Black Freedom Struggle” online classes

The right wants to force educators to teach only conservative “patriotic” narratives.

In this perilous time, please

donate to defend teachers’ right to teach people’s history.
