The Great Society was a baby step towards equality.


Lyndon B. Johnson challenged the United States to accept and put into practice and policy social domestic programs set towards the goal of the elimination of poverty and racial discrimination. He encouraged multi-racial programs such as scholarships, grants, work study, bilingual education, special education for disabled children and also created the Head Start program. Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps and equal access to fair housing was all started during The Great Society. I'm sure that I am leaving something out somewhere. However, The Great Society also encouraged Clean Air and Water Acts and Amendments to the Constitution. Pretty important stuff!
