The Public Education Project
The Public Education Project (PEP) is an independent nonprofit group that is dedicated to improving the public’s knowledge of United States government’s history. We do this by urging citizens to study individual federal agencies to learn about their missions and historical contributions, and by providing them with exciting online resources to explore that past. We are pleased to offer several original PEP productions on the history of federal agencies, and we have also established a unique hub for accessing the rich trove of agency history webpages. We are also developing longer-range plans to engage the public with federal history through social media and to provide students and teachers in K through 12 classes with stimulating learning materials. Through these efforts and resources, PEP is working to promote greater trust in government by all citizens and more informed exercise by them of their civic duties.
