Council on Foreign Relations Survey

The Council on Foreign Relations is in the process of developing several new education initiatives on international relations and U.S. foreign policy and a Model National Security Council program, both of which will be targeted to students in the 16-22 year old range, and their teachers. In order to create materials that will be as widely adopted and used by as many teachers and students as possible, CFR is seeking educator input and feedback and has developed a survey for history and government teachers.
