Web Hutchins has been teaching high school history and English for 22 years in the Seattle Public Schools. He earned a B.A. in history, with an emphasis on African-American history and literature, from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. His graduate work, including his M.Ed, has all been done at the University of Washington, including a paper researching the roots and the solutions of our school system’s tragic failure to successfully educate black male teenagers.

Hutchins has published an op-ed piece on race and Advanced Placement in the Seattle Times, a feature piece on civics education in Educational Leadership magazine, a letter to the editor in the Wall Street Journal, and has an in-press piece with Northwest Sportsman due out in November 2012. .

In the Spring of 2012 Hutchins participated in a weeklong study/retreat at the Federal Judicial Center with the American Bar Association in Washington D.C.  He calls it his best professional development. Meeting Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a true highlight of the retreat.

Hutchins is also a member of the Washington State Council for the Social Studies for whom he presented his Civics for All Initiative last winter. This fall Hutch is presenting Civics for All again at the National Council for the Social Studies Annual Conference in Seattle. Find out more at
