We know you know this, but let us say it again: Social Studies learning matters tremendously. Without historical knowledge, there can be no wisdom; without geographical knowledge, no understanding of the world’s peoples and places; without civic education, no knowledge of liberty or responsibility, justice, or equality, and no democracy – no government of, by, and for the people.Dr. Walter C.
