'Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.' - George Santayana

While we can certainly argue how much and of what specific history should be taught in high school, it seems likely that not teaching history is not a sound plan. History provides a context for us to understand our place in the universal timeline.

The Past Pushes Us into the Future.....


If you eliminate History from the high school curriculum, you lose a rare opportunity to pass on the invaluable life lessons of our predecessors, that we, ourselves should hope never to have to experience.

Ofcourse it is not meaningless. It is very helpful. The dumbass who voted that it hinders progress should present an actual argument.

History helps us to understand why we have certain social issues and why societies behave the way they do.
