On the Coast To Coast AM radio last night, Academy Award (TM) Winning Director Oliver Stone & his co-author Peter Kuznick came on the air to talk about their book: "The Untold History Of The United States." They have a companion piece television series on Showtime cable tv about the same topic & both are quite excellent.
Oliver & Peter are concerned about American students who on average get lower grades than even in mathematics & science. Teachers & schools aren't properly teaching history when sometimes only XII% of the students in classroom are aware at times of certain facts. It was certainly a most enlightening piece, especially the screwups by both successive Democratic & Republican Presidents. These gentlemen are right & talk radio where you have to think & listen without any visual accompanyment was the perfect place to bring up these talking points as history should be taught. Not just in American schools, but in all schools so students can learn from it & not repeat its mistakes.
