Proper history teaching is being crushed under the weight of play-based pedagogy which infantilises children, teachers and our culture.

How can we educators claim credit for understanding, let alone teaching, the 'global mind' without a single course on the impact of religion on every day life?
There is all the difference in the world between teaching children about religion and handing them over to be taught by the religious.
Critics of American colleges typically attribute the failings of undergraduate education to a tendency on the part of professors to neglect their teaching to concentrate on research. In fact, the evidence does not support this thesis, except perhaps in major research universities.
