One of the guiding principles of Freedom’s Frontier is to “consider future generations in everything we do.” The stories of Freedom’s Frontier can spark children’s imaginations and inspire in them respect for multiple perspectives. Additionally, local history education helps students to understand and care for the place where they live.
The stories of Freedom’s Frontier help teachers in both Missouri and Kansas to meet state curriculum standards. Teachers from outside the area can use these stories to meet National Curriculum Standards for Social Studies.
