Huh? Blame the liberals for no history? Take a look at your own backyard first. It used to be that all students got a liberal education in school - a wide and diverse education. It's the Republicans that have forced schools to teach to the tests with the "No Child Left Behind Act". Coporations like Harcourt Educational Measurement, CTB McGraw-Hill, Riverside Publishing (a Houghton Mifflin company), and NCS Pearson that determine what is on the tests like FCAT and consequently what is taught - Reading, Writing, Arithmetic -- a big return to the basics. It should be no surprise that teachers don't teach history, civics or music anymore, these subjects aren't on the test. We don't know history? It's your own party's doing, Rick Santorum.
