Jimmy Carter

Although Jimmy Carter was not very popular in his term, he still made some big changes to our nation. Carter was the 39th president of the United States, and he served from 1977-1981. With past experiences in politics, it was no surprise that he was elected as president. He established two important cabinet-level departments during his term: The Department of Energy and The Department of Education. Carter was elected president in a time of inflation in our country, which might be a part of the reason why he wasn’t elected for a second term. By 1980, Carter had lost his popularity among the people and lost the election to the Republican Candidate Ronald Reagan.
