FREE (Federal Resources for Educational Excellence)  makes it easier to find teaching and learning resources from the federal government.

About FREE

FREE makes it easier to find teaching and learning resources from the federal government.

More than 1,500 federally supported teaching and learning resources are included from dozens of federal agencies. New sites are added regularly.

You are invited to link to FREE. (Use a FREE logo, if you'd like).

Get new resources delivered to you several times a week: sign up for the FREE RSS.

Federal agencies, if you're looking to involve teachers in developing teaching resources, see our lessons learned.

FREE was originally conceived in 1997 by a federal working group and launched a year later. It was redesigned and relaunched for the first time in November 2006.

The 2006 redesign was made possible by many, including Jerry Alexandratos, Rob Barthle, Sally Budd, Rob Duckwall, Andrew Miller, Simone Miranda Olson, Cory Lebson, Jennifer Reeves, Chhavi Sharma, Keith Stubbs, Joe Wang, David Zwack, and teachers who reviewed the site.

FREE is maintained by Peter Kickbush and Kirk Winters, Office of Communications and Outreach, with support from the Development Services Team in the Office of the Chief Information Officer, U.S. Department of Education.

FREE is among the most popular K-12 websites maintained by the U.S. Department of Education because of the many great resources being offered by contributing federal agencies.
