although knowing the history of medicine, how far we've come, and the mistakes/crimes of the past (like the tuskegee experiments) does help me understand my job today and why we have ethics and informed consent requirements. also how to proceed with future developments. so perhaps yes, it does help with my job.

school makes everything boring by testing you on useless names and dates. tough it out for the tests, then forget. however the emotions, the reasons, and the outcomes of history are very important and extremely interesting.

yes. it puts reality into perspective. it affects what policies i support, and what leaders i believe.

also, learning about isolated historic events may seem boring, but you put it all together, you get an epic story of humanity.

"not important" is very subjective. without history one would assume we always lived this way when in reality we had to fight for our rights against those who held all the power. it explains the origins and holds the solutions to modern geopolitical conflicts. and it allows us to not repeat the mistakes of the past, or copy some of their previous solutions.

discovering ancient history is what brought europe out of the dark ages and into the renaissance. you are dead wrong in dismissing history.

80% things in history is not important, but it would be great to know what was going on here on teritory where you living today.

I think that we should learn what happened in the past, but in a bit different way. And if the reason is because everyone would know that, then it's stupid, but find yourself another reasons.

history is all about past and the way people survived..it's good and benifical because we get to know the Things which our ancestors done wrong and we'll not repeat them...so this must be taught ...

The text formatting here is shitty. It says 'Because "Everyone should know that"'. Like the thing teachers say.

I'm not sure I understand the topic. Your argument is that we shouldn't teach children history because they should already know it? how would they know it if we don't teach them?
