Monroe Elementary School in Topeka, Kansas, is not the only site where the story of Brown v. Board of Education can be told. There were many segregated schools throughout the country, and countless parents who disliked the segregated system and wanted something better for their children. As a symbol of the struggle for equal educational opportunity, Monroe Elementary School provides an ideal setting from which to interpret Brown v. Board of Education.
Brown v. Board of Education NHS is in the process of establishing partnerships with the communities in Delaware, District of Columbia, South Carolina and Virginia, so that we can all tell the story of Brown v. Board of Education.
