American History
« on: January 03, 2017, 04:56:18 PM »

This is pretty sad.  My whole family that includes 5 teenagers are going to Boston the first week of July.  Trying to map out a plan.
The kids have no idea about Bunker Hill, Lexington-Concord or other historical sites.
Is this all the work of the progressives destroying our history and culture so they can ram  all their liberal progressive crap at them?

That certainly is, and is brought to you by our friends at the Department of Education of both Federal and State levels in dictating a curriculum and learning objectives that does not include deep dives into American History.  Sad, very sad!

No, this is not from "The Onion."

U.S. history no longer a requirement for history majors at George Washington University
