We believe, that is, you and I, that education is not an expense. We believe it is an investment.
Lyndon B. Johnson
As a former teacher, Lyndon Johnson understood the importance of education and its ability to transform people's lives. His presidential years saw an unprecedented wave of over 60 education bills.
The park that bears his name continues this education legacy.
Local educators have a variety of opportunities to bring lessons from LBJ National Historical Park to their students. If you want an educational, informational, and hands-on approach to learning about culture, heritage, and our natural surroundings, LBJ’s education program is for you.
On this site, teachers will find information about scheduling field trips, classroom visits from park rangers, traveling trunks, and videos.
