Future Careers

Although History is a very interesting subject, parents sometimes worry that there are no career opportunities linked to it.  This is not the case.  History teaches students invlauable skills in critical thinking, literacy, research and essay writing that benefit students no matter their career path. 

Additionally, an understand of our past is critical to an understanding of the future.  History teaches us how society progresses, and how it stumbles.  An understanding of the basics of the past is the cornerstone of democracy and good decision making.  In the words of George Santayana, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
