"Kansas Schools" newsletter, 1952-1969

Posted to KGI Online Library on July 5, 2017 at 1:27 PM by Bill Sowers

Within the well dusted shelves of the State Library of Kansas' virtual KGI Online Library is an incomplete collection of newsletters, "Kansas Schools," covering the years 1952-1969.

These publications, issued by the then Kansas State Department of Public Instruction, could be seen as historical reflections of the changing face of public education and society in general in the Sunflower State during the post-WWII decades.  These were changes that shaped the coming of age of the Baby Boomer generation... The Korean War, school integration, suburban development, the Vietnam War, the turbulent 1960s, gender equality, etc. 

The collection is a great tool for social, historical and casual researchers interested in the development of public education and American society in the 1950s and 1960s.  You can find "Kansas Schools" online at the State Library of Kansas' KGI Online Library at:
