In History
  • Common School

    Common School
    Common schools were created and funded by the taxpayers. These schools were open to all white children only. It was the Common School that has eventually led to what is now known as public schools. Rizzo, L. (2010, June 12). Horrace Mann.

  • Suffrage Movement

    Suffrage Movement
    After nearly 100 years of fighting women were granted the right to vote. The Suffrage Movement was created and allowed women to become equals to men. This also allowed women to become teachers which gave them a chance at pursing a career and doing so without recourse. San Francisco supports women’s suffrage (1911). (2011).

  • Civil Rights Movement

    Civil Rights Movement
    The Civil Rights Movement enlisted the Federal Government in effort to equalize educational opportunities for children of color. This led to Brown vs. Board of Education which led to segregation in schools. This event created many protests and uprisings. Currently all children are allowed to have the same educational opportunities no matter what their color, culture or background. https://blogs.getty.edu/iris/an-activists-view-of-the-civil-rights-movement/
  • Title IX

    Title IX
    Title IX was created so that no child can be excluded from a school program due to their sex. This created new opportunities for females such as athletics and other school programs. By allowing this, it opened the door for females to become better and allowed them to possibly have better lives. If this hadn't happened there may not have been some of the strong female role models today. https://sites.ed.gov/idea/about-us-department-of-education/
  • No Child Left Behind

    No Child Left Behind
    The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) was signed into law by President George Bush. This was created to ensure that schools helped children reach their educational potential. They were held to certain standards and test. If a school failed to comply they could face losing their federal funding. Klein, A. (2015, April 10). No Child Left Behind: An Overview. Education Week.
