Defining US

Defining US connects the power of media and the promise of education in America’s classroom for the heart and mind. Thousands of educators are teaching millions of students how to better understand each other and themselves.  What can they teach US?  

Watch the inspiring stories of students. Listen to the credible voices of educators. Learn how to navigate the pressing, vital issues that define our humanity and our lives. Resources that improve our attitudes and behaviors. A network that connects families, schools, and communities.  A classroom without walls to create hope, healing, and unity in divided times.  

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. predicted that changing laws would not be enough to unify our nation.

“Morality cannot be legislated,” he said. “Education must play a great role in changing the heart.”

And, it is.

“Education is a revolution of the mind that no one can take away from you.”
