ELA is pleased to announce a new teacher-focused initiative at ELA, the TERRA FIRMA Teaching Alliance.
Long time ELA advisors Bonnie Snyder and Paul Rossi are building a network of K-12 teachers alarmed by the rise of illiberal agendas in education, working to restore integrity and quality to their profession.
Regular teacher meetings are underway, and Terra Firma's leadership has established a core of dedicated members busy developing techniques to bring more viewpoint diversity to their classrooms. We're very excited for them to expand the network in the coming year and beyond.
Please join us in supporting this new initiative!
To build a national network of teachers and parents who support freedom of thought and expression, so our nation’s K-12 schools produce independent thinkers prepared to address society's complex challenges.
“The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error.”
-J. S. Mill, On Liberty
