I think there is a tremendous danger not only in disregarding the study of history, but also in disregarding the perspective with which history is taught. It seems that there is a tremendous gullibility among parents in our culture about what is being taught in history classes in the government schools and in the popular history textbooks written by committees. A high school history class is not just a history class. It is likely to contain bias and convey values we may or may not agree with it. To disregard the perspective with which a history class is taught is worse than disregarding the study of history completely. The danger of this is that we end up with a huge swath of the next generation that is misinformed and has skewed values and beliefs, which is far worse than mere ignorance of history.
