Since the Chicago office opened in 1990, more than 3,000 local educators have participated in Facing History's professional development programs. These teachers annually reach over 300,000 middle and high school students in over 725 public, religious, and independent schools in the Chicago metropolitan area. Our training enables students to deepen their knowledge of history, their understanding of the origins of hatred and violence, and their ability to relate history to their own lives. A strong alliance with Chicago Public Schools and growing partnerships with suburban, religious, and charter schools enables us to have critical and significant impact.
