The 1776 Report

The declared purpose of the President’s Advisory 1776 Commission is to “enable a rising generation to understand the history and principles of the founding of the United States in 1776 and to strive to form a more perfect Union.” This requires a restoration of American education, which can only be grounded on a history of those principles that is “accurate, honest, unifying, inspiring, and ennobling.” And a rediscovery of our shared identity rooted in our founding principles is the path to a renewed American unity and a confident American future. 

The Commission's Report 
has been issued.

I look forward to reading it.

Update: There is a report that the report has been removed from the White House website and that the Commission itself has been abolished by the new administration. The report's removal may simply be a website glitch. I have not seen any official announcement.
