How is the subject of history being taught in our schools today?


Is it more or less important (in your opinion) than other subjects? How will it impact a student's life in the future?

    That is a shame. History is just what it is and should not be altered to suit the whims or current thoughts of being "politically correct" because that changes the actual facts...or ignores them.

    I think that you are right and as that quote states, if we do not learn from the past, we are "doomed to repeat it." History should be taught with the unvarnished facts as they exist. To revise it to make it "politically correct" is simply a lie.

    That is sad that some teachers/professors are trying to teach a revisionist type of history. We should be able to learn from the real facts of yesterday...not what some people want us to think or know.

    Texas history was equally stressed in one of the grades also. I missed that because of my age, moving from Wisconsin to Texas but my 2 brothers became well versed in the TX. state history. I wonder how much of today is spent on past vs. present?
