    The Academy - Athens, Greece

    The Academy - Athens, Greece
    The famed philosopher Plato created the Academy where he taught his political and universal theories. Aristotle, one of his students, would later establish his own school in the same city. These schools have greatly influenced Western, Indian, and Arabic traditions, setting precedent for traditionalist and existential theories that are in use today.

    American Common School Movement

  • Brown v. Board of Education

    Brown v. Board of Education
    The U.S. Supreme Court unanimously overturned Plessy v. Ferguson, ruling that separate schooling is inherently unequal. The American school system will never be the same now that all students, no matter what race or culture, should be prepared to live in a democratic society, aware of societal values, and pursue higher education/training.

    Education Amendment Act: Title IX
    Title IX of the 1972 Education Amendment Act began the changes needed for women to experience the same opportunities as men in the U.S. education system. Similar to Brown v. Board of Education, the federal government used Title IV to advance U.S. society through steps toward equality.
