With the President calling for a more "patriotic" education, we look at how U.S. history is taught in schools, how state standards are set, and how to have honest, and sometimes uncomfortable, conversations about our nation's history.
We take listener calls, and hear from N'Dia Riegler, Massachusetts History Teacher of the Year and a science and social studies teacher at the Eliot K-8 School, Katherine Tarca, director of literacy and humanities for the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, and Khalil Gibran Muhammad, professor of History, Race and Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School, and a contributor to The New York Times' 1619 Project.
