Richmond Chapter 18: Change, Controversy and Commemoration

The past thirty years in Kansas has seen some major changes. The biggest change for the state has been the movement of people out of the state and how many Kansans have shifted from a rural setting to an urban setting. In order to maintain a high quality of living Kansas has created some relatively impressive environmental controls in place and loosened many of its morality based laws to make the state more appealing to a wider group of potential citizens. Kansas has also been forced to make some changes especially in the realm of civil rights. The Brown v. Board of Topeka case forced desegregation of schools in the state and some of the larger districts in the state are still dealing with desegregation issues. Educationally the material from this chapter could be used to once again discuss what the future for the state needs to be and what direction the state should take to create a more prosperous future.
