The President's Daily Diary: April 11, 1965

On Sunday, April 11, 1965, sitting next to his first school teacher, Mrs. Kathryn Deadrich Loney, "Miss Kate," President Johnson signed the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 into law. The ceremony took place at Junction School, the one-room schoolhouse near Stonewall, Texas, where Johnson began his education. The Act was the first general aid to education law, represented a major new commitment of the federal government to education, and focused on disadvantaged children in city slums and rural areas.
