Report - Commission on the Humanities and Social Sciences

Public humanities programs in the areas of k-12 and lifelong

learning are more important than ever because education, more

than ever, involves not just schools, but their communities and the

larger social context. If society doesn’t honor learning, encourage

curiosity, it’s hard for schools to succeed. If learning stops when

formal school stops, then the knowledge and understanding of

America’s workforce and citizenry will be inadequate by any

measure.

—Peter Gilbert, Executive Director, Vermont Humanities Council
