John Brummett recites many of the sorts of things Arkansas students should learn about Arkansas history.
The state's school children need to be made acutely aware of their state's mostly sad history. Maybe then they will come to embrace the long-overdue imperative not to repeat it.
UPDATE: The Iconoclast, a Fayetteville blogger, also takes up the call of better history instruction. Case in point: A Northwest Arkansas Times editorial Monday (now cleaned up on-line) which apparently pointed to the Little Rock SEVEN as an example of the heroic models our students needed to know about. They were magnificent, but there were nine of them, no seven.
