Niall Ferguson: "Rid Our Schools of Junk History"



Niall Ferguson calls for ridding British schools of junk history. And, of course, similar demands have been made about ridding U.S. schools of junk history. That said, Ferguson has his own conservative and statist agenda to sell."Professor Colin Jones, president of the Royal Historical Society, said he applauded some of Ferguson's ideas, such as teaching history in longer, chronological blocks. But Ferguson's language was condescending and the argument ideological, he added."
