Letters on Liberty: In defence of teaching history
Nicolas Kinloch looks at the ways in which today’s approach to history is often more concerned with modern activism than an appreciation of the past. History is not just about race and victimhood; nor is it a mere collection of simple moral tales, he argues. Instead, it is a maze of conflicting stories to tell – all of which students should be exposed to. Teachers should have the courage to reject the restraints imposed by Critical Race Theory, he argues, and take up the challenge of leading students through the strange and different worlds of the past.
