The Need to Educate Millennials

It's time to start doing what the educational system refuses to do... teach.

The Millennial Generation hasn't been taught history, and that bodes poorly for the future.

Note that the following quote is often trimmed to the last line. The context is important...

"Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness.
When experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual.
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

—— George Santayana in "The Life of Reason"

And you cannot remember the past if you were never taught about history.
