History Class - Endvisible

This quote was added by endvisible
History is taught so that we know what works and what doesn't, but I believe that we should teach history a bit differently. We should, along with learning about our past, highlight the positive changes throughout our history and show the improvements society has made; that way, we won't hate the country every time we leave class.

The real problem is that you can't teach history without some kind of bias. It's baked right into the lessons. Therefore, extreme care should be taken to present history from different perspectives to establish a well rounded understanding of what really happened, why, and what we can learn from it. This never happens in school though. You are at the mercy of the government who dictates how they want to shape your mind. In America we have the internet to counteract this force. In places like China, they literally don't even know about a lot of important historical epochs. For instance the atrocities of Communism. Those details have been effectively erased from the population's collective memory.

This goes out to qweerty, the negatives are already highlighted, that's the point of this particular quote. We shouldn't get tunnel vision by focusing solely on the negative historical aspects of any country. Believe it or not you can have a balanced education.

The negatives should also be highlighted, because we have to learn through our mistakes and not withhold information that is necessary to understand, to learn about the history of the country's actions to see how we can change NOW. We shouldn't "love" the country either.
