First Amendment Schools Project Launched

May 7, 2001: First Amendment Schools Project Launched

Date: May 7, 2001

From 2001-2005, the First Amendment Center and the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) team up to launch the First Amendment Schools project, a national initiative designed to help schools affirm First Amendment principles and put them into action throughout their communities. Participating schools pledge to integrate First Amendment rights and civic responsibilities into the daily lives of their schools. The Freedom Forum’s Charles Haynes, above, helped lead the effort.
