Let’s explore about a prominent name in history and the 39th president of US President Jimmy Carter, he served as the nation’s chief executive during a time of serious problems at home and abroad. Carter’s perceived mishandling of these problems led to a setback in his bid for reelection. He later turned to diplomacy and advocacy, for which he was presented a Nobel Prize for Peace in 2002.
Jimmy Carter’s accomplishments are numerous. He created two new cabinet-level departments: the Department of Energy and the Department of Education. He also established a national energy policy that included conservation, price control, and new technology. President Carter took measures to improve the environment through the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act and the Superfund Act, which is designed to clean up sites contaminated with harmful substances. He advocated a process of bureaucratic restructuring and was accountable for deregulating the airline, trucking, rail, infrastructures, and finance industries.
Jimmy Carter aimed to make government “capable and compassionate,” receptive to the American people and their prospects. His successes were distinguished, but in an era of rising energy costs, mounting inflation, and continuing tensions, it was impossible for his administration to meet these high expectations.

“The American people have always recognized that education is one of the soundest investments they can make.
