On June 27, the National Association of Scholars’ (NAS) Civics Alliance launched American Birthright: The Civics Alliance’s Model K-12 Social Studies Standards to inspire America’s state education departments to provide social studies standards that teach American students their birthright of liberty. The Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization (AHI) is part of the Civics Alliance, which is a national coalition of organizations and citizens dedicated to preserving and improving America’s civics education.

The June 27 virtual launch event featured David Randall, Executive Director of the Civics Alliance and coordinator of American Birthright; Nicole Neily, President and Founder of Parents Defending Education; Douglas Norlander, veteran social studies teacher; Sue Lucas-Peterson, South Dakota State Representative; and Jenna Robinson, President of the James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal.

The Civics Alliance wants to improve every aspect of American social studies instruction by inspiring America’s state education departments to provide social studies standards that teach American students their birthright of liberty.
