"Librarian of Congress James H. Billington testified on April 10 before the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions about the Library of Congress vast online educational materials and about the Library’s experience teaching teachers how to use these resources in their classrooms."
"Billington was part of a panel and spoke about ways to reach students and teachers with the primary sources available at www.loc.gov. He was asked to speak by Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) in reference to the American History and Civics Education Act (S.504), a bill that is sponsored by Senator Alexander and other members of the Senate. Senator Alexander chaired the hearing."
"The bill would establish “academies for teachers and students of American history and civics and a national alliance of teachers of American history and civics.” (from LOC Press Releases)
