Recently there has been much said about the value of learning and understanding history. David McCullough on 60 Minutes and Oliver Stone on Piers Morgan in just the past few days have publicly lamented that we are raising children who have no understanding of history and the perilous consequences that will follow.  I would add, we have already raised at least one generation under those circumstances and therefore have parents and teachers who have been raised and educated without a healthy understanding of history.  I agree with Doris Kearns Goodwin and suggest we kick it up a notch and start focusing on history at least as much as we have been on science and technology for these past decades.
