  • Those are the most important classes

    We don't want to be dumb and not know basic history. History shapes politics today and if your going to be voting you should be familiar with some terms and dates and stuff like that. History is so very interesting ad it's a chance to learn why things are the way they are today.

  • English Obviously. History has to change.

    All people in the U.S. should learn English. If you are born here in an English speaking family then obviously you still need to practice and learn more than just words used around your home. The more English words we know, the better we are able to convey a message to others. If you are born in a family that does not speak English as it's primary language, not learning English can hold you back and less able to communicate with others here. A child could also teach their non-English speaking parent the language helping them to adapt to American society.
    There is an old saying that goes roughly "Those that do not learn their history are doomed to repeat it." Unfortunately, the way history is taught is not helping with this. Think of tests you had to take in school. Until you reach college, most of the questions deal with Who, Where, and When. The answers to these question are more trivial than useful.
    Example: In 1492, Columbus landed in the Americas, and was claimed at the time to have discovered a new continent.
    Can 1492 happen again? No.
    Does his name have any relation to future events? No
    Will someone else discover the Americas again? No
    In order to gain from history, we need to better understand the timeline of situations.
    We need to know what happened. Could history repeat itself? Sure
    We need to know what lead up to the event. So we can see signs of it happening again.
    We also need to know the final outcome. Was the outcome from the event good or bad. If it was good then either allow it to happen again or encourage it. If it was bad then we should do what we can to prevent the same outcome.
    Instead of learning how events lead up to and helped cause future events, we learn trivial information that only gives praise to individuals at that moment. The fact that we have not properly learned history is why we have and are still doomed to repeat it.
    Along with being taught history incorrectly, we are also learning incorrect history. History is written by the winners so tends to give praise to those who would otherwise be discredited if credited at all.
    Examples: Had the U.S. lost the war of independence, people like George Washington would have either been lost to history or portrayed as Traitors. After all, what they did was an act of treason. At best his name would be synonymous with traitor instead of Benedict Arnold who would have become a hero.
    Had Germany won WWII, Hitler would not be known as a genocidal warmonger but as one of German's greatest leader who took a nation out of crippling debt and put them at the top of all nations possibly the world.
    It is only when we see how the facts line up that we can see how one leads to another and it should be only facts.

  • We should have English and History classes.

    We do need these classes for one reason, school. For example, we need English class for better wording, helping foreigners learn English, and to be better for making responses. For history, we need it to inquire the history of the world and learn for history's mistakes and make the world a better place for everyone. While some people think that these classes don't do much, they help people all over the world when they do come to the U.S. That is why we need them.

  • We should have English classes but not history classes.

    History classes are not helping children with their education. History tells us about the past. Children need to be thinking about the future, How they want to work in their life, How they want to live their life. They are just learning how other people lived. History can help you in your education, but you don't really learn about life today. As life is changing, it is getting harder for us. Some things are getting easier, some are making life difficult. But life will always change.

  • English and history are to critical subject in a students learning endeavors.

    The two subjects math and English are a necessity when it comes to a child's learning experience. English, being the language that we write and speak is necessary for us to speak and write the English language fluently. History, another important subject, teaches us about our history and how the world has became the place that it is today, which is vital to child going through the educational process. In conclusion, English and history are important subjects that must be taught to students in the world.

  • Yeah and YES

    Ok, so English is good because students can learn to read and write, and in more advanced English form ideas, back them up, and present them, but HISTORY is the most MOST most important subject for students to learn. If our people do not know history then they will never be able to succeed because government, as shown through its constant history of oppression, will take advantage of any forgetfulness the people have in history.

  • Yes: We Need English And History Classes

    In order to retain any ability to serve as a check to the growing power concentrated into the hands of wealthy and corrupt individuals, education in our past and the way in which we communicate are essential. The time is nearing for total breakdown on a social level from economic and environmental disruption. When that time comes, people will need to be able to commuicate effectively and within the context of reality, so as not to be further taken advantage of.

  • Yes and no

    In my opinion both of these classes are important but to a certain extent. For History, I think it is important for children to learn from the mistakes of people in our history. Throughout our history it seems that the evil, greedy, and horrible people have always been taken down one way or another, and it is important that kids learn this so they can learn the consequences of their actions. Also as I said, many leaders of countries have made mistakes and it is important that children learn of these mistakes so they are not made again. For English, it is important that kids learn how to read and write well, but to a certain extent as after about 9th grade it is pretty much a waste of time because most children can read and write at this point. The problem is that an emphasis is put on these classes instead of other classes like Home Economics or Spanish which could be more useful than English and History.

  • They make us better.

    Yes, we need English and History classes, because they help us become better people. A person who doesn't know how to speak and write English will have a hard time getting a job. They will be taken advantage of by credit card companies and by mortgage companies. English and History prepare us to live.

  • Hello Mr. Man

    Ome. The more English words we know, the better we are able to convey a message to others. If you are born in a family that does not speak English as it's primary language, not learning English can hold you back and less able to communicate with others here. A child could also teach their non-English speaking parent the language helping them to adapt to American society.
    There is an old saying that goes roughly "Those that do not learn their history are doomed to repeat it." Unfortunately, the way history is taught is not helping with this. Think of tests you had to take in school. Until you reach college, most of the questions deal with Who, Where, and When. The answers to these question are more trivial than useful.
    Example: In 1492, Columbus landed in the Americas, and was claimed at the time to have discovered a new continent.
