Re: James Fulford's Blog: North Carolina High Schools Want To Ignore History Pre-1877
To those who are upset by Fulford's blog that pre-1877 American History will no longer be taught in North Carolina, I'm saddened to tell you that the curriculum doesn't matter.
Whether it is pre or post-1877, students have no interest in history, civics, English literature or any other of the subjects that were once drilled into our heads.
We live in the age of the cell phone, the iPod and video games. Parental support and encouragement for learning has all but vanished.
This is painful for you to contemplate but much worse for me as an instructor to live with.
I probably don't need to remind you that North Carolina has one of the nation's fastest growing illegal immigrant populations.
