President Research- Carter

Jimmy Carter, 39th President of the United States

Lessons to be learned from Carter's experiences as President:

  1. Is it important to remove racial barriers when trying to unite a group of people.
  2. We must work towards the advancement of human rights.
  3. After  President's time in office is up, he or she should still continue working for change in some way, therefore leaving a legacy behind and giving the presidency a good name.
  4. It is hard to govern as an outsider (he was a peanut farmer from Georgia- did not fit the stereotype).
  5. A President must make compromises in order to get things moving in Washington.
  6. Carter often disdained the news media, which became a major disadvantage for him. A President should respect and work with the media.
