Hillsdale College Releases ‘1776 Curriculum’
It’s about time those of us who are opposed to the teachings of Critical Race Theory got our own model curriculum to teach students the truth about our history and once again inspire pride in being an American.
Hillsdale College, long a beacon of free and independent thought amid a sea of radicalized higher education institutions, just announced the creation of its “1776 Curriculum” to accomplish just that.
As a comprehensive program for teaching American history, civics, government, and politics in K-12 classrooms, Hillsdale says the 1776 Curriculum was developed “in response to President Trump’s Advisory 1776 Commission, which called for a ‘restoration of American education,’ which can only be grounded on a history of those principles that is ‘accurate, honest, unifying, inspiring, and ennobling.’”
With nearly 2,400 pages of material, The Hillsdale 1776 Curriculum is a comprehensive guide for any parent or educator who wants students to receive an honest account of American history and culture.
Unlike most liberal education curricula, Hillsdale’s model doesn’t promote any ideological narrative. It instead relies heavily on primary source documents to allow students to make their own determinations about the merits of the American experiment – believing, as we do at 1776 Action, that an unbiased civics education will impart students with a deep respect and appreciation for the greatness of the United States and our founding principles.
Best of all, the entire curriculum is available for free on their website here.
