What are they teaching them these days?

Daughter is almost 15. We were talking about President's speech. She had not seen it. (She is out of school for Regents testing week.) Husband and I suggested she watch it on Youtube. We both found it quite moving. Also succinct, which is a rare virtue in such things.

Found out she did not know the significance of Seneca Falls, Selma, or Stonewall. (Selma rang a dim bell somewhere, but that was it.)

Husband fixed her up right away with a quick review of history. He also pointed out we still have some distance to go.

Poor kid, she can't know things if nobody teaches her.
