It would appear that America, the self proclaimed ‘Greatest Nation on Earth’ is having a serious problem educating it’s future generations in things that they really ought to know, if they are to carry their nation forward into the next few decades.
This is the second article I’ve published here, written by Dr Jeffrey Lant, CEO Worldprofit, that decries the poor record of educating it’s student’s in the knowledge that makes up their nations very character.
In the first article published here: Articles / General Interest / National Assessment of Educational Progress, The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) reported that in it’s latest report, American student’s did not have a very good grasp of ‘Civics’, the study of government policy and democracy. Skills any future leader of the nation would obviously need to know.
In todays published article found here: Articles / General Interest / I Flunked History Again. Abraham Lincoln, Who Dat?, NAEP have once again reported a very poor result in the level of knowledge students have in History, and most importantly in American History. Again something which any future leaders should really have some knowledge of, so they can learn from the up’s and down’s in America’s past.
One noted finding was that the majority of student’s did not even know who Abraham Lincoln was. Now granted I’m a 52 year old Brit, but even I know who he was, maybe not with the detail that men such as Dr Lant would know but I do know who he is.
For any uninformed American student’s who may be reading this, I’ve included a large image of your 16th President, who served from March 1861 until April 15, 1865, when he was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth.
I know History can be boring and seem irrelevant at your age but these are things you should know! Shame on You!
