Comment: Re:Is the history he teaches incorrect? (Score 1) 363

by hedleyroos (#47840535) Attached to: Bill Gates Wants To Remake the Way History Is Taught. Should We Let Him?

I watched the Big History TV series and was unimpressed. They attempt to make connections between items spanning billions of years eg. Kennedy was killed by a bullet, lead is formed in supernovas. It feels as if the episodes suffer from ADD. Not enough time is spent on a single subject.

What exactly is wrong with the way history is teached? Or is old Bill trying to rewrite a few bits to fit his vision?
