A Conference for Educators
Washington, D.C.

Our social studies community was thrilled when the Every Student Succeeds Act created multiple new competitive grants to support high-quality instruction in civics, economics, geography, and history.  We were even more excited when Chairman Tom Cole of Oklahoma provided funding for those grants in his appropriations bill, even though that work still has not been finished by Congress.  Now, we need to ask Congress to provide funding for those grants in both the FY 2017 and FY 2018 bills - and we seek your help to do it!

From New Year’s Resolutions to New Year’s Priorities

Many of us write a set of resolutions to help us plan for our start to the new year.  This year I had a little help in writing my resolutions: our new NCSS Strategic Plan.  The Strategic Plan identifies five Priorities – Collaboration, Communication, Innovation, Inclusiveness, and Influence & Leadership – which speak strongly to me as more than just a pledge for our organization’s future.  They frame my professional and personal commitment to social studies education in 2017.
