American Presidents and Their Attitudes, Beliefs, and Actions Surrounding Education and Multiculturalism: A Series of Research Studies in Educational Policy
Baptiste, H. Prentice; Araujo, Blanca
Multicultural Education, v11 n3 p36-42 Spr 2004
The presidents of the United States have had a lasting impact on the history of the United States. From the founding of the nation to the new century, the presidents have set the tone of the nation in matters of race. For centuries, the ideology of the country has been one in which only one perspective that of the white, European man has been dominant. The presidents have had the power to change this perspective but have failed to do so for many reasons, such as greed, weakness, timidity. This article focuses on three presidents--Andrew Jackson, Woodrow Wilson, and Dwight D. Eisenhower--and their legacy to a nation still fighting towards racial equality. It examines the roles of Jackson, Wilson, and Eisenhower in leading the country. [For other articles in this series see EJ781910; EJ781919; EJ682498; and (4) EJ727797.]
