When I was in School during the 60's in California it was of the curriculum. Of course California and most of the Southwests history coincides with Mexico and Spain's History. The Spanish conquest of Mexico and California, the Spanish Missions and the Spanish and Mexican Explorers and Settlers as important to that area of the United States as the Pilgrims and other English Settlers are to the rest of the country (at least the Eastern Seaboard).Originally posted by: Riprorin
Why not required courses in Mexican/Spanish history too?
As for African History being on the curriculum of Philadelphia Schools, it doesn't matter to me. I always liked History in school and it seems like it would be interesting. If it could help children become more involved in school then it's a good idea.
