    Why do we want history subject in schools??

    I think history is a uselees subject. NO need to memory that subject and  writing exams.It cannot be useful for our daily life.

    Oh cont rare, The best and surest way forward for a civilization is to know where its been. Take it from some one who's lived a bunch of history in recent years. Knowledge is power and the more you have of both the better off you'll be.

    The past is the foundation on which the future is built. If you have learned about the mistakes made in the past, you have learned to avoid repeating them in the future.

    Our present is tomorrow's history, and tomorrow is today's future. Knowing the past in the present means enhancing knowledge for a brighter future.

    We shouldn’t be making the same mistakes as the previous generations.

    To know where you’re going, you have to know where you've been!

    We need to study history so that we do not repeat the mistakes of the past. Another point: Contrary to what we might want to believe, there is no self-made man or woman. We stand on the shoulders of those men and women who came before us.

    I think history provides a context that makes our daily lives richer. How much we learn from the mistakes of history as a species is perhaps debatable, but the very fact we know what has occurred before makes that possible.

    History is apparent in every field (for example, how could modern medicine exist without a historical reference?) but it is so fundamental that additional learning is provided.

    It’s much harder to decide where to go if you don’t know where you’ve been.

    Learning history is good.  One reason is that perhaps those such as geethakasiram might learn something -- perhaps even some grammar and spelling as an incidental benefit.

    History IS useful in daily life, despite claims to the contrary by illiterates such as geet... 

    With history, you get a perspective on how societies rise and fall, and how and why this one is falling.

    But, it depends on where you get your history.  Public schools are not a good source.  Case in point:  Public schools lionize Abraham Lincoln.  Freeing the slaves and all that.  The true history is that Lincoln was a totalitarian traitor who instituted another form of slavery -- the draft (conscription) of soldiers to fight in the "Civil War".  The Civil War (aka the War Between the States or the War of Northern Agression ) was all about usurping the authority of the individual states and creating the Federal monstrosity under which we suffer today.

    The slavery issue was just an excuse that the ignorant idiots of the time, similar to geet... today, embraced, thus allowing Lincoln to aggrandize the Federal government at the expense of the states and PEOPLE.

    If we do not learn from our past history we are bound to repeat it.  Anyway sometimes it is the little know trivia we learn that really is the most interesting.
