Today’s Anniversary: The First Televised Presidential Debate

It's September 26, and on this date in 1960, the first televised presidential debate took place, featuring John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon.  Televised debates are common  in our times.  In fact, the first one of this year's campaign is a week from tonight.  Back then, however, television was relatively young, and the media coverage was nowhere near what it is today.  The televised debates gave many people the opportunity to see the candidates for the first time, and the 1960 debate had a huge impact on the outcome of that election.  We know that you have many choices when it comes to choosing the correct school for yourself or your children.  That's why we have made our Web site as informative as possible and have included the Four C's of cost, curriculum, caring student service and credibility as our campaign platform, so to speak.  We invite you to contact us if you have further questions, and we look forward to you casting your ballot for us and becoming an American School student.
