It’s a sad day when America’s youth have no idea what the purpose of our Declaration of Independence is. The Wall Street Journal reported the following news:
Fewer than a quarter of American 12th-graders knew China was North Korea's ally during the Korean War, and only 35% of fourth-graders knew the purpose of the Declaration of Independence, according to national history-test scores released Tuesday
The results from the National Assessment of Educational Progress revealed that U.S. schoolchildren have made little progress since 2006 in their understanding of key historical themes, including the basic principles of democracy and America's role in the world.
Instead of teaching children American history, the progressive school systems are too busy social engineering. Is it any wonder our republic is unraveling before our very eyes?
I remember when the television networks played School House Rock on Saturday mornings. Maybe that should be brought back. It would lay a foundation that our public schools have so woefully neglected to do.
