A lot of things once thought crucial in K-12 classrooms are nowadays kicked out on the street.

The very essence of education, and you change this at your peril, is learning that certain people did certain things at certain times for certain reasons. Now, our Education Establishment can play games all day but as you get rid of various elements in that equation, you have lost History, for one example.

If you never teach children the name of a single country, you have stolen geography from them. You have not done them a favor. You have hurt them. Intellectual capital comes in many forms. One big one is knowing the name of the country you live in and the names of your neighbors.

This article is a meditation on things we need to keep.
