This will feel like a political discussion... but if you're feeling like discussing on these thoughts, fire away.
A lot of schools in the US has made significant events fall on deaf ears. It's like the schools intentionally rewrite them to make them boring as possible to ensure we don't actually think for ourselves.
They've taught me little to nothing about the American Revolution and why it was such an important event. The stories behind this event are hidden from students. Makes me so upset that they've made such a historic event so boring... there's no stories to tell, only dates, names, and places. No one is going to read that except in court.
