In History
  • Common Schools

    Common Schools
    The Common School is the precursor to today's public school. Horace Mann, the "Great Equalizer," convinced that a nation to create a system of common schools. Good schools were good business, and the future of the economy and the democracy depended upon providing a "common" education to all children, no matter where they were born or to whom. This event is essential to education because it's the beginning of what it means to have our education system we have today.
  • Plessy vs. Ferguson

    Plessy vs. Ferguson
    "separate" facilities for blacks and whites were constitutional as long as they were "equal" This was the beginning of equal education opportunities for children of color in the united states. The event is important because it is the beginning of the United States. Saying yes, we need to educate children of color with an equal education.
  • Brown Vs. the Board of Education

    Brown Vs. the Board of Education
    This event is essential because all children will have equal access to education and the beginning to end segregation in the United States. No more walking several blocks to receiving an education. The children will have the same access to education as a white student would.
  • IDEA(Education of Handicapped Children Act.)

    IDEA(Education of Handicapped Children Act.)
    Public schools are required to take disable children and provide equal education. Parents would also have a say in their child's education. The only time a child is to remain separate is when the nature or severity of the disability is such that instructional goals cannot be achieved in the regular classroom. Again inclusion in education is a must. We need to be equal to all, no matter the color of skin and if they have a disability.
  • No Child Left Behind Act.

    No Child Left Behind Act.
    The no child left behind act opened the door to hold schools and teachers responsible for a child's' education. I chose this one because it ensures disadvantaged students received the same education as students who are not disadvantaged. Equal education for all children, even if they are at a disadvantage Teachers and school staff should recognize if a child is struggling and if they need more help than usual should be evaluated by SPED professionals.
