The other day, Heartland Institute Editorial Director Chris Talgo, was on the Rod Arquette Show in Salt Lake City, Utah to talk about the pathetic results from the National Assessment of Educational Progress. The nation’s report card found that only 13 percent of 8th graders are considered proficient in US History.
Chris is a former U.S. History teacher in the public schools of the Chicago Suburbs and a small town in South Carolina. That was almost a decade ago, and even back then Chris was shocked at how little his students knew about American history. And now the results are even worse.
Why is it getting worse? Chris explains in this excerpt from the Rod Arquette show. Have a listen.
