The 1776 Report

Updated: Oct 23, 2023


The President's Advisory 1776 Commission

January 2021


A must read for all students across our country!  I recently heard a college student and educator say that they were proud that their school district halted their social studies curriculum because it was not inclusive enough.  It has come to my attention that the word inclusion is being used to prey on the compassion of well-intentioned educators.  History is not meant to be inclusive. It is there for us to learn from. This report discusses the importance of teaching our students factual history using important documents such as the Declaration of Independence as a reference for maintaining the freedoms that our country is founded on.  May this be the greatest argument for teaching cursive to our students as well?  One of my favorite quotes from this report, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.  We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream.  It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”  I’m assuming my readers know who this quote is by, but if not, it’s by Ronald Reagan.  I fear that without factual, objective history lessons in our schools, we are dangerously close to what Reagan is referring to.  Please be sure your children and grandchildren read and understand this report.
