State Board of Education Proclamation

Among the items on the May 22, 2014 State Board of Education agenda was a special recognition of the 60th year anniversary of the Brown vs. Brown  education decision.  In his reading of the proclamation, Board President Braunlich noted that actions in Virginia which led to public school closures in Prince Edward County Virginia in the late 1950’s were tied into this significant and powerful legal action in Brown vs. Brown.
