With each new decade, as historical events get added to the curriculum, something has to be dropped out or breezed over more quickly. Choosing what gets the attention is not an easy task.
    Not to mention the huge amount of technology they have to learn.

    I'm always amused by these "the sky is falling" takes on education from people who don't have kids in school.
    Close to 30% of Americans are anti-worker and consistently vote for policies that hurt the working class. Labor Day is to honor all those who fought to bring workers into the middle class. The anti-worker gang needs to learn that this holiday is celebrated in spite of their stupidity.
