Our education department supports educators in increasing student achievement by connecting the historical facts of the Underground Railroad and the struggle from slavery to freedom to modern day slavery.
Contact us to meet and discuss how we can support your efforts in the classroom. Research has proven that children who visited a museum at young ages achieve higher scores in reading, math, and science. In addition, students are able to connect historical events to current day life.
Knowledge is Key
At the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, we reveal stories of freedom's heroes, from the era of the Underground Railroad to contemporary times, challenging and inspiring everyone to take courageous steps for freedom today.
Our education department's focus is to listen and understand your needs based on collection of data, analyzing the data, and to assist in creating and presenting strategies to increase student achievement. The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center is a place your students will remember because we make history come alive.
