Speech to the North Idaho Pachyderms Club, a Conservative group interested in preserving the Western tradition in American society.
In this address, I explain the distinct heritage of the West and its precious legacy which is our freedom. I advocate a transformation of Idaho’s High School Graduation requirements. Specifically, I recommend the following program of required study:
9th Grade: Ancient & Medieval History (the West before AD 1492)
10th Grade: Modern European History (the West after AD 1492)
11th Grade: U. S. History I (Pre-Columbian era to AD 1898)
12th Grade: U. S. History II (Spanish-American War through Now)
Current Civics, U. S. Government & politics, and Economics requirements would be taught within the four History Courses.
