A couple days ago I was heading into a local grocery store. There were a few middle school aged kids there saying "happy fourth of July." I said "thank you but you realize we are celebrating Independence Day ON the fourth of July." Then one of them said " Ya, but we don't call it that any more because world war II was so long ago" ... OMG!

Kids nowadays don't have a clue and our schools no longer teach history.

Absolutely NOT true!

History/Social Studies Requirements by State

One major issue is: With our country having over 245 years of history and adding 10 more each decade, how to you determine what to add to the curriculum and what to delete? It is impossible to teach all aspects of our country's history. Each state has a Dept. of Education which (in most if not all states) has a textbook committee to review and select the textbooks available to the districts. In turn, the textbook publishers have the dubious task of publishing texts which meet the adoption requirements of all the states (Almost impossible task for a multitude of reasons); trust me, as a high school/community college textbook author, we have to revise every 3 or 4 years to keep up with state mandates.

There are also so many things that have happened that would turn history books upside down, CC didn't discover the Americas, he was the proverbial afternoon shift, Vikings were here a long time before, there are others that did coastal discoveries a long time before that. Even the chinese arrived before columbus. And there's still people believe the earth is flat, guess they didn't pass history 101 either.

They didn't pass basic science either. Everyone else knows if the world were really flat, cats would have knocked everything off it by now... [emoticon]

Yes, I have often heard "happy 4th". But I don't know when I did not know what we where happy about.
