A Generation Without Historical Memory


A Generation Without Historical Memory

Listen to the Jan. 17, 2018, episode of the Trumpet Daily Radio Show.

America is losing its knowledge of the past. History is undervalued in schools and teachers aren’t excited about teaching the subject—when it is taught, it is often done without honesty or objectivity. As far back as 1985, writers like Diane Ravitch at the New York Times were warning about the decline of teaching history. “[A] society without a sense of history is like an individual without memory,” Ravitch wrote. When individuals forget their past, they repeat the same mistakes—the same is true of nations. On today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show, we explain why an understanding of the past is critical to understanding the future.
