Amplifying DC’s Central American History

Today, there are over 4 million Central Americans in the United States. However, the rich history of these peoples and countries are often not taught in classrooms. To address this, the DC-based non-profit Teaching for Change launched Teach Central America Week, held during National Hispanic Heritage Month, to support educators by providing free resources to teach about the histories of Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama.
