America’s top liberal arts schools skip U.S. history, report finds | Fox News

Unreal… when I went thru high school in the 70s a history teacher stated we were going to skip WWII since it had been “done so much”. Only after reading Eisenhower’s biography did I get a clue as to how huge the war was. Add to that the Berlin Air Lift following the war – unbe-freaking-lievable.

The report — “Education or Reputation?: A Look at America’s Top-Ranked Liberal Arts Colleges” — found that within those top 29 colleges, not a single institution except for three military academies requires a “foundational, college-level course” in American history or government.
