Reflections of the 60s at LBJ Ranch - 4/11

The 7th Annual Reflections of the Sixties education conference at the LBJ Ranch is a learning opportunity for persons interested in understanding the impact of the 1960′s on the fabric of our country.  Guest speakers will talk about topics relevant to the 1960′s and the role Lyndon B. Johnson played during this time.

This year, the 50th anniversary of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act will be celebrated.  Highlighting the day will be a ceremony at 2 pm at the one-room Junction School.  At that site on April 11, 1965, President Johnson signed the landmark law that for the first time provided extensive federal funding of the nation’s elementary, junior high and high schools.
