In History
  • Same Education

    Horace Mann also introduced same education anywhere in the United States. If a student was to move their education will be the same. If the student was learning at a second grade level and moved mid year the student will still be learning at a second grade level until that student has passed. This is still used today due to families constantly moving we must keep the same curriculum in the grade levels.
  • Age Grading

    Horace Mann created "age grading" which is used today. This method was used to separate by age into different groups. This method is still used today. We know have different grade levels for certain ages.
  • Plessy vs. Ferguson

    U.S Supreme court allowed segregation in the United states. All were treated equal but separated. Blacks and whites were allowed the same things however in different locations or perhaps different conditions. This effected everyone due to conditions of items given to certain races caused arguments and riots.
  • 1918

    Set as a law in 1918 all students must attend school and keep up with attendance. This is common today because there are certain rules, and laws that students must attend school at a certain young age.
  • Progressive Movement

    This movement helped teenagers continue their education by funding high school for higher education. By the end of 1920 a range of teenagers began attending high school regularly. This is still around because it is high school. Many teenagers today have the right by the age of 16 to decide to continue high school or get their GED. None of this would not be possible if this movement did not exist.
  • Brown v. Board of Education

    By the Supreme Court it was a unanimous decision to end unequal treatments of blacks and whites. Although this argument started back in December of 1952, in 1954 a decision was reached. This is beneficial today because we are able to have diversity in our classrooms and all around us. Everyone is treated equal in a respectable way.
  • Engel v. Vitale

    This case talked about religion being used at a school such as saying a prayer. It was ruled in the Supreme court that prayers do not need to take place in a public school unless it was a religion school.This is important today because we are a bigger diversity than the 60's and we do not want to offend anyone of another religion.
  • Tinker v. Des Moines

    This case talked about two family members wearing a black armband on their school uniform. When asked to remove it they said no that they have a freedom of speech. In todays world for education freedom of speech is expressed in many different ways. It can be expressed by hair color, make-up, and the choice of clothing. There should be some rules that students must follow to avoid cases like these.
  • Title IX

    Title IX was made to stop discrimination over sex towards education. A student no matter what sex should be able to get an education. This is beneficial to anyone who is receiving financial aid, or any educational programs. This law continues to help all who are getting an education.
  • Goss v. Lopez

    This case is important because all students who are suspended must have a valid reason for the suspension. This case talked about a few students who were suspended but without a valid reason. This is important because education should not stop if a student gets in trouble. There is in school suspension which still helps troubled kids still get an education.
  • Education for All Handicapped Children Act

    Approved by President Ford in 1975, this act allows special needs to get help. The government would fund all those who are needing special resources for their education. Today we still use this to help our students receive all types of help. This law also helps maintain structure in education and who can receive funding for special education.
  • Plyler v. Doe

    Supreme court received a case of public schools denying education to immigrants. This was taken to court and argued that all should be able to receive an education. in 1982 the case was cleared and all were allowed to have an education. No matter the immigration status all are able to get an education in any public school.
