Having a history degree myself I have to ask: Is history education in the US really that terrible that we have those Slavery Apologists come out of the woodwork on trekbbs once in a while?
At least in public schools (below university level), most of the real details in just about every era are glossed over in order to get through everything quickly. It's not about learning so much as memorizing a few names and dates so that the students can pass their tests. No joke, the average American high schooler could probably learn more about a history topic from Wikipedia than they could from their own textbooks.
