Remembering President George H.W. Bush

It's December 5, and today is a National Day of Mourning for George H.W. Bush, the 41st President of the United States.  American School remains neutral in political matters, but as we've written many times before, visiting presidential libraries can be a great way to learn about the presidency and make history come alive.  The George H.W. Bush Presidential Library Center is one such place.  In recent years, American School employees have visited similar facilities and learned about Harry Truman, Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter, and Barack Obama is building a presidential library near our former headquarters in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago.  If you're near any of the presidential libraries, consider stopping by for a visit.  You'll learn many things that will help enhance your online high school courses, high school correspondence courses, online middle school courses and middle school correspondence courses and in some small way pay tribute to the presidency and the people who have served the United States in that office.
