The Great Society


“A Great Society” for the American people and their fellow men elsewhere was the vision of President Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ). The Great Society program became Johnson’s agenda for Congress in January 1965: aid to education, attack on disease, Medicare, urban renewal, beautification, conservation, development of depressed regions, a wide-scale fight against poverty, control and prevention of crime and delinquency, removal of obstacles to the right to vote. In all, the Great Society was the greatest burst of legislative activity since the New Deal.


You are tasked with determining whether LBJ’s Great Society has been a success or a failure.
