Because the Canadian schools focus on our history we are self-centered? I take world history, so that means everyone is self centered?

No, but we were at a time forced to take it, as if it was our own history. Its your choice whether you take a world histories class or not, we didnt have a choice. There was a sad time when a canadian couldnt not name the first primeminister, but could name over 5 US presidents. Not anymore, now its an optional thing for us, but I mean, that just shows that america forces its pride down everyone elses throat. Or at least it did. At least now other nations (france) have the balls to reject that kind of supremecy

I gurantee that it was the Canadian gov't that put that in schools, not ours. And as a whole, every single student has to either drop out or take world geography and world history....so it is "forced" upon us.

A funny requirement to graduate in the United States is having to take United States history in high school. That's not the same in Canada is it?

Makes perfect sense to me, the past guides the future. So why not understand the past so you can excel in the future (ie: capitalism)?

I think most people bitch about it just because they thing it's boring, which I can sort of agree but there is some sort of a purpose for it.

Firstly if we are talking about the contents of Bush's head,we may not actually need a brain surgeon.

Don't get me wrong... I like the requirement and I'm a big fan of knowing your history. But it wouldn't make sense for Canada to learn US history.
