One segment offers an interactive timeline of events that have "laid a foundation for the first- and second-generation children in classrooms today and those who will follow."

In terms of law, the timeline starts with the Naturalization Act of 1906 and runs through 2002's No Child Left Behind.

Obviously, more contributions could be cited. As we covered here last month, it seems like the timeline could be expanded to 1885 with Mary Tape's lawsuit against the San Francisco School District. Nonetheless, it's an interesting and engaging collection that may be of interest to readers.
