Some people are of the view that the students need to be aware of their local history as opposed to the history of the world. Having said that, although it is significant to learn about the local background, eliminating world history from the academic course is not a wise choice.
Firstly, there are few reasons behind the notion that local history alone would suffice the academic requirements of a school child. Learning about their regional past will provide the students an essence of their background and culture. This aids a student to communicate effectively within their own community.
On the other hand, despite some advantages of local history, evicting world’s history from the curriculum should not take place. World is becoming a globalised place; hence, it is significant for a pupil to learn about global culture and standard of living to incorporate ideas of different rulers into their own or atleast learn from their mistakes. Learning about Hitler, for instance, will help a student to choose a path of democracy as opposed to dictatorship. Moreover, the world history also digs deep into the reasons behind certain laws formed in the past which could be beneficial for a pupil in forming future business idea.
In conclusion, though local history constitutes some major perks for a student, however, it needs to go and in hand with the world’s history to grab full advantage from an academic field. Therefore, the school curriculum needs to impart in students, the knowledge of both their local and world’s history.
