Nonprofit 'Facing History & Ourselves' fights racial inequity through education

Facing History & Ourselves Cleveland has partnered with area educators for more than 20 years, offering one-on-one teaching support, classroom strategies, and lessons on the events shaping Ohio and the world. We support a diverse network of schools—public, charter, independent, and religious—across all grade levels and subject areas.

We have deep relationships with all Cleveland area school districts, including the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD). In 2012, CMSD and Facing History started a high school, Facing History New Tech, where Facing History curriculum and values are embedded into every grade level and discipline.

Facing History New Tech is really doing a tremendous job—this school is the real deal. They’ve taken kids that come from challenged homes and have produced strong students and great graduates.
