When reading Walter Williams’ latest column in this issue, we became somewhat alarmed and we wondered what are they teaching in our high schools and colleges? It is widely known that schools have failed in teaching American history. Are the students not interested in American history and/or is it that so many of our teachers lean so far to the left and they indoctrinate students in their beliefs?

There has been concern by many people about what is being taught, especially in colleges and high schools, because of what they hear from their offsprings and other relatives about their beliefs of American history and political science. Every student entering college should be warned about what they might hear from their history and political science instructors, most of whom have liberal leanings. They should be warned about the revisionists who try to change American history facts, or twist them to their likings and political philosophy.

These types of instructors are successful in swaying some students because the young men and women are naive and lack experience in worldly affairs. They don’t know American and world history. Williams in his column asks whether the students are miseducated or stupid?

Williams wrote that a recent Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation survey found that 51 percent of American millennials would rather live in a socialist or communist country than in a capitalist country. Only 42 percent preferred a capitalist country such as the American republic.

Those millennials should live in a communist or socialist country for a period. They would change their minds. They apparently don’t know about the millions of people who were killed and still are being put to death by the tyrannical rulers in those countries where freedoms are limited.

Williams writes: “Young people who weren’t alive during World War II and its Cold War aftermath might be forgiven for not knowing the horrors of socialism (we add also communism). Some of their beliefs represent their having been indoctrinated by their K-12 teachers and college professors. There was such leftist hate for former President George W. Bush that it’s not out of the question that those 32 percent of millennials were taught by their teachers and professors that Bush murdered more people than (Russia’s) Stalin.”

If you go by the survey results, Williams’ question of whether the millennials are miseducated or stupid is valid.
