February is Black History Month, and this year, we are eager to connect you to resources and opportunities to ensure that Colorado students have access to fact-based and complete history.
A broad bipartisan majority of Americans agree: to create a better society, schools need to provide a thorough, accurate, and fact-based history education and teach students to reject racism and respect the equal value of every person.
Unfortunately, rampant misinformation about what is taught in schools is forcing teachers to omit difficult parts of our history and not teach students that racism is wrong and is adding yet another stressor for teachers at the worst possible time.
We honor history by teaching. This Black History Month, and every month, we encourage you to learn more about Learn from History’s work and consider becoming an Ambassador in your school, district, and community.
“If our country is ever going to realize its potential … of who we say we are and what we claim to be … we have to tell everyone’s histories accurately and fully.”
