history is a great subject but it is often taught by people who allow their own political opinions to replace the true facts , history is also supposed to help us learn from our past mistakes and avoid making the same mistakes again, sadly this is something our political classes failed to understand ,and most of them are teachers!

Every History teacher in the country can attest to hearing the Dreaded Question at least once a year: “What’s the point in learning about this?”

    You are talking complete rubbish – ‘often taught’, ‘replace true facts’, ‘most of them are teachers’ . When were you in a classroom lately? A teacher nowadays that pushes a political agenda in a classroom, or any agenda for that matter, would be in trouble. You are also doing a disservice to students who easily form the own opinions and are entitled to do so.
