PJTN WELCOMES DR. SANDRA ALFONSI
Once again PJTN is blessed and enriched by the addition to our organization of yet another world-class expert—this one proving already to be an invaluable resource to our aggressive and ongoing campaign in the arena of K-12 textbooks.
Dr. Sandra Alfonsi was the Director of National Hadassah’s Curriculum Watch and Chair of the Hadassah Academic Advisory Board for many years. She has been a reviewer of K-12 United States History, Social Studies and Global and World History textbooks since the mid-1990s.
Dr. Alfonsi was the primary researcher for ACT! for America Education from 2011-2012 and Lead Author of its Report: Education or Indoctrination? The Treatment of Islam in 6th through 12th Grade American Textbooks. She served as ACT! for America’s Director of Textbook Revision Project, ACT! for America Education, 2012-2013.
She is the Founder and Director of Textbook Alert, an independent think tank, whose goal it is to insure standards of education which are historically accurate as well as ethnically and culturally unbiased.
Dr. Alfonsi is the Senior Academic Fellow for Truth in Textbooks. She lives in Jerusalem, Israel.
Please join with me in welcoming Dr. Alfonsi to the PJTN team. Our commitment to the mission to fight the forces of antisemitism and revisionism in American education that have increasingly sought to take the minds, hearts, spiritual values and leadership potential of America’s next generation is on the frontlines at PJTN. Those that oppose our goals to expose the truth in American education have been dealt a major blow by Dr. Alfonsi’s well proven expertise and dedication to excellence in her in-depth investigative research, and now by her addition to PJTN.
Thank you Dr. Alfonsi for your dedication to this important work. We are excited about the victories ahead!
