It was shocking to learn, from the information released by the National Assessment of Educational Progress, that history scores of American students have dropped over the course of the coronavirus pandemic. Without learning about the past, it is not possible to have a successful future. Therefore, students must have a strong focus on history.
There is a reason why we study history. The events of the past allow us to gain an understanding of the world and the society that we live in. Understanding history enables us to have a meaningful life. From history, we learn valuable lessons that can help us avoid mistakes in our own lives.
It is essential for children to study history. It is the parents’ responsibility to ensure that their children are learning the history of the United States and the world.
It is sad to see that children’s scores in history have dropped since the pandemic. Parents and teachers must make a strong commitment to teach history to the children. With firm knowledge and understanding of history, children will be able to grow up and live productive lives.
