Teaching Tolerance—an award-winning magazine dating back to 1991—has reached millions of educators and countless classrooms over the years.

These stories reflect nearly three decades of educating for a diverse democracy and an ever-evolving quest to ensure every child has an equitable school experience.

Issues have come and gone, but one thing remains the same: Educators, students and school leaders continue to inspire us and each other with their innovation, resourcefulness and passion.

Enjoy this glimpse into our past, which informs our present. And be sure to spend some time with our more current issues.
