WW2 isn't really even taught in high school anymore. It's usually like one day in US history class.

This is actually true. Modern high school history classes utilize most of the time to teach how we stole the land from the Indians

I graduated HS just over 10 years ago and we werent expected to remember dates and we didnt study the actual wars, only the causes and affects.

In my AP American History class we spent an entire semester on the causes of the civil war....and maybe 2 days on the war itself. If nothing else, I think its disrespectful to the veterans.

The one girl that said the Pearl Harbor attack led to the US entering the war more was actually kind of correct.

We were supporting the war effort before that.

The only thing more hopeless than asking girls about history is asking them to calculate 20% tip without their phone's "tip calculator."

 






They cannot even do it with a normal calculator.












Move the decimal left once, and double the number.

"........................."

Divide by 10, multiply by 2...







"I'll just use my phone."

And I'm sure in high school they plumbed the depths of those causes and effects so that the students gained a deep understanding of the issues.

Depends on the teacher, of course, but at least that gives the students a taste of what History is, as a discipline.  Especially appropriate for an AP level class.

My daughter is a sophomore in HIGHSCHOOL and she has a pretty good history teacher. He is Annapolis grad and a Marine pilot. I have seen that guy open her eyes to history.  Public school.

I dunno, in Junior High my social studies class spent an entire semester (in 8th or 9th grade) studying the Soviet Union.

 












I can remember, my teacher was a fairly young guy who really knew his shit. He made no bones about the fact that the Soviets were the bad guys, that Communism was a terrible system of government,

and he predicted that if we managed to avoid a war, the Soviet Union would eventually collapse economically. (This was in '82/'83.)

When people like this vote without understanding history or knowing something about current affairs and cause and effect; when they just vote for the one the TV says is "the nice guy", they will enslave us all.

Sad. I'm only 5yrs removed from HS, but thankfully we had a pretty good US History class all-around. Even the idiots from our class could've done better than those girls.

My AP class was of course more in-depth & we had 12 guys + 12 girls in the class, so I know those 12 ladies could've answered all of the questions without hesitation.

We we spent about a month on each WW, and we even did a re-enactment of Aaron Burr vs Alexander Hamilton with water balloons during class at some point because we were special

We had already picked sides, but clearly didn't enter until the attack. Obviously our Lend-Lease policies supported only one side of the conflict, but realistically the other side couldn't do anything about it but suck on it.

Japan jumped the shark when they attacked us. They had no path forward to win, except hoping we would give up.

My AP history teacher in high school had been a waist gunner on a B-17 over Europe.

We covered WWII.

And much else.  Beyond his personal experiences, he was a very intelligent and engaging teacher.

It literally shaped our modern world.
