Arkansas Schools, Not Teaching History
Somehow this story doesn't surprise me at all.
In the study, Arkansas is one of 33 states to get a D or an F, earning a numerical score that ranks the Natural State 36 th out of 48 states
It's common knowledge that history is not being taught in schools anymore. A number of stories have been written on how little students know about history and geography.
"Rather than asking students to look at the birth of Christ or the fall of the Soviet Union, for example, students are encouraged to evaluate major turning points in history," the study said about the standards. "Rather than mentioning the struggle for a balance of power in the wake of the Napoleonic wars, students are encouraged to "probe the interdependencies of nations." This approach does nothing to ensure that students learn world history," the study said
"probe the interdependencies of nations" really means that students are being taught the good old leftist, socialist program. I pulled this out from a search of "interdependencies of nations":
Demonstrate awareness of interdependencies of nations and cultural pluralism within your community and an attitude relating to the importance of helping students become responsible citizens in the community of nations and in their multicultural environment.
This is not history and it's why American students are so ignorant of history.
