9/11: Education Initiative in New Jersey

The State of New Jersey is adding a 9/11-related education program to its curriculum according to a “Star Ledger” article, “N.J. to release 9/11 curriculum to help educators teach about terror.”

“Developed over three years and completed in time for the 10th anniversary of the attacks, the curriculum is called “Learning from the Challenges of Our Times: Global Security, Terrorism and 9/11 in the Classroom.””

“Created by a volunteer group called the 4 Action Initiative, made up of Families of September 11, the New Jersey Commission on Holocaust Education and Liberty Science Center, the effort also included former Gov. Thomas Kean and dozens of New Jersey teachers who wrote and piloted lesson plans.”
