Debate.org should have a history forum.

This is what passes for a solid education in CA.

My AP history class was only able to spend three days on World War 1, one day on World War 2, three days on the Cold War, etc....

But thank goodness they found time to fit in time to teach specifically about the achievements of homosexuals.

The the Stonewall probably should get more class time than the single most destructive and world changing conflict in the history of mankind

I think I will be attending an AP history class next year as a sophomore in New York. Do you mind sharing with me your experiences in your AP history class?

There are more urgent things that should be attended to that creating another forum.

Actually i think this would be an easier change for Juggle than some of the other proposals that we have on our list.

They are currently exploring giving us some say in what debates go on the home page, but apparently that's a bigger project than any of us would have guessed, 4 days of tech time. I would imagine renaming a forum and clearing it out would be fairly simple.

I'm for this, and will ask to have it done if we get some decent response here, which we have, and i am in favor of it too.
