    The Department of Education Was Created 32 Years Ago, Today

    On Oct.17, 1979, President Jimmy Carter signed into law the Department of Education Organization Act.  The ED opened officially in May, 1980.

    On this education anniversary, it seems fitting to look at some of America’s  classrooms from decades past.  Plus, it wouldn’t be right not to give a big shout out to all the teachers out there.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    How do (or did) you get to school?

    I rode the school bus when I was little and my mom drove me when I was older and thought I was too cool for the bus. What about you? — Tanya Ballard Brown
