WE THE PEOPLE...
A SELF-GOVERNING nation cannot endure without the responsible involvement of citizens who understand and preserve the CIVIC PRINCIPLES upon which the nation is built. We cannot expect citizens to love and protect what they do not know. Teaching these essential matters begins best
through teaching students the FOUNDING OF THE NATION - the extraordinary EVENTS, ISSUES, and world-changing CIVIC IDEAS and PRINCIPLES that gave birth to the UNITED STATES.
Because American students nationwide were not learning this HISTORY,
GOVERNMENTAL PRINCIPLES, and CITIZENSHIP SKILLS
in any way that they retained, identified with, and put to use,
the FOUNDING DIRECTORS developed the
WHY AMERICA IS FREE CURRICULUM that does achieve
this depth of learning with outstanding and lasting results.
DONNA PASSMORE and JAN SMULCER are the founding directors of the highly successful Why America Is Free Curriculum that is now in fifteen states.
Background of the Founding Directors
DONNA PASSMORE ~ criminal and constitutional law, education, curriculum development, history, dramatics, research, script writing, negotiation and multimedia production.
JAN SMULCER ~ business management curriculum development, research and writing, graphic design, multi-media productions, restoration, and historic preservation.
Institutions and organizations that have assisted, contributed to,
