While this is not related to the OP's post, I would just like to comment that I believe it's very important to neither make our history seem tarnished, or cover it in pride. Acknowledging both negatives and positives is what needs to happen. Negatives are important, as they allow us to reflect on our past, and cause it to not happen again. I believe it was the great philosopher Aristotle that said it is important to remember terrible history, so it doesn't repeat itself. However the United States is indeed spectacular and one of the greatest countries in the world, so understanding the great actions of the country is also important.
I will make no comment on the education system as it is, as my knowledge is very limited. However, as I said, filling history with positives is not good, and filling it will negatives can be even worse. Rather than do either, be realistic. Look at history as it is, from all different perspectives so you can formulate your own ideas and opinions on history as a whole.
Our histories past has a lot of injustices, but it also is full of achievements. We need to understand both.
