Biographical Note

In 1997 the Arkansas General Assembly adopted legislation to require the incorporation of Arkansas history into the general school curriculum of the state. As a result of that requirement, many schools which had previously neglected state and local history were forced to give it a much higher profile. Since most teachers of Arkansas history have not had a college level course in the subject, a wide variety of public and private agencies have developed teaching materials on the subject of Arkansas studies. Among the most active have been the Arkansas Historical Association, the Department of Arkansas Heritage, and the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies.
