United Kingdom

The need for effective civic education is more crucial than ever before.

Following the Brexit vote and terrorist attacks in Manchester and London, the incidence of hate crimes in the UK has risen significantly, highlighting the fragile nature of our democracy. Teachers are struggling to help support and guide students as they process reports of racism, bullying, prejudice and violence in their own communities and around the world.

Facing History is meeting this need.

In the UK, we reach 1,800 teachers across 96 schools, reaching an estimated 100,000 students each year.

We meet the need for effective civic education through a multi-pronged approach!

Lessons integrate history and citizenship education with a study of identity, community, and individual choice.
