About the Project Schools

In May 2002, the inaugural class of First Amendment Project Schools—a diverse group of elementary, middle, and high schools serving urban, suburban, and rural communities— were chosen by a blue-ribbon selection committee. Since then, those schools have worked worked to integrate First Amendment rights and civic responsibilities into the daily lives of their communities.

In May 2004, the inaugural class of First Amendment Schools was joined by five new Project Schools. "All of the project schools are committed to upholding the democratic and public mission of schooling in America, to providing their students with an apprenticeship in freedom and responsibility," said Gene Carter, executive director of the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD).
