School Got it Wrong? Thinking Critically about History
Is the history you learned in school wrong?
The historical accounts taught in schools might be inaccurate, and textbooks and teachers generally present biased historical accounts—often without anyone noticing. This might not be intentional, although avoiding controversy and disregarding conflicting evidence is valued. Pick up most history textbooks and you will not read about anything unknown. You will see definite dates for just about every historical event, from the appearance of modern humans in Africa 200,000 years ago to the conquest of the New World.
