Repeating History

Kirk, Russell
September 1977
National Review;9/16/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 36, p1054
The article focuses on the decline in the study of history in schools in the U.S. History professors were alarmed about the situation because historical discipline were abandoned in favor of courses in special social problems. A study led by Richard S. Kirkendall, executive secretary of the Organization of American Historians, revealed that historical studies decreased because of the notion that history is not a practical subject.
