Back to School Musings: Resource Connection and Brown vs. Board of Education

July 20, 2009

As July slowly rolls to its inevitable close, those of you with children are probably pondering the return of school (and all of the shopping that comes along with it).

In 1954, there was a decision made that changed the way our schools would be structured forever. Brown vs. Board of Education was the landmark Supreme Court case that challenged racial segregation in U.S. public schools and issued in a new era of civil rights in America.

If you want to take a minute from your back-to-school shopping and learn a little more about how this case changed not only the educational system in America but the very fabric of our society, check out the Resource Connection’s resources on this topic!
