I am a product of the sixties. In my recollection, education wasn't really driven by trends of fads. It was pretty basic. History, Math, English, Science, Typing, Physical Education, and the basic curriculum needed to get a basic education was what was taught. We had electives that went into areas of Art, Music, Drama, Sports, Electronics, Mechanical Drafting and so on. But, you had to cover your required course curriculum before you could take electives. If anything sticks in my mind as being a trend, it was probably physical fitness. JFK established the Presidents Council on Physical Fitness and they developed standards for fitness that were implemented in our Phys Ed classes. It was a good program too. Most, and I mean 85-90% of the kids I went to school with were very physically fit.
