Welcome to the Education Section! 

The Washington Post declared the “Wonders of Geography” video is  “a marvelous enhancement of two subjects by having them interact.” That is also the goal of video programs featuring new perspectives about our notable leaders George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Dwight D. Eisenhower. Evocative selections recorded live at the VCO’s “Music of the Presidents” concerts are combined with lively in-studio discussion by experts.  Several students also play a role. Video viewers from nine to ninety-nine are encouraged to enhance the video experiences by checking out the accompanying Study Guides.
