About the FAIR Pro-Human Learning Standards

These standards invite all learners to envision an American society built on Fairness, Understanding, and Humanity.


The FAIR Pro-Human Learning Standards provide essential guidance for teaching and learning about the histories, experiences, and contributions of people of different cultural and ancestral backgrounds in the U.S. These standards can be used to inform and guide curricula in Ethnic or Racial Studies, History/Social Studies, and Civics. Existing standards in these subject areas provide either cynical or triumphal views; the FAIR standards avoid both mistakes. While honestly acknowledging the injustices and failures of the American past, our standards emphasize constructive principles that inspire optimism for the American future.
