To develop a plan for scaling up First Amendment education in Knight communities
ASCD is the largest educational member organization, representing 170,000 educators from more than 135 countries. Since 2000, it has created some 100 First Amendment Schools nationwide. These are K-12 schools where students not only learn about but practice the First Amendment in their schools and communities. This grant will use the lessons learned by this project to create and test a plan to increase First Amendment education in the 26 Knight communities.
