Transcript of History of Education Timeline

Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA)
The Individuals with Disabilities Act was passed to federal law to ensure children with disabilities, mental or physical, get a free public education. It was originally known as the Education of Handicapped Children Act created in 1975. The name was changed in 1990 when new amendments were added. Additional amendments were passed in 2004.
Terrorists attacked the United States on September 11, 2001. They hijacked airplanes in mid-flight and flew two planes into the World Trade Center in New York City, one of them into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, and the fourth airplane in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Passengers on a fifth plane fought the terrorists and prevented them from flying into the White House or the U.S. Capitol. The two skyscrapers in the World Trade Center caught fire and collapsed, killing nearly 3,000 people in all.

History of Education Timeline
Hurricane Katrina
Two decades after the First World War, an even more devastating war, World War II, broke out. Adolf Hitler and his National Socialist (Nazi Party) caused Germany to become economically and politically unstable. They rearmed the nation and signed strategic treaties with Italy and Japan to further Hitler's ambition of world domination. Hitler invaded Poland in September 1939 which caused Great Britain and France to declare war over Germany, starting WWII. Over the next 6 years it became the deadliest war in U.S. history. There was an estimated 45-60 million deaths, 6 million of them being Jews. These Jews were murdered in Nazi concentration camps, which was apart of Hitler's diabolical "Final Solution", now known as the Holocaust.
