The Teaching of History in Scottish Schools since 1945: A Progress Report.
Feldman, Martin
This report examines the teaching of history in Scottish primary (elementary) and secondary schools and sets an agenda for further research. The research findings include: (1) Scotland may be the only country in the world, and certainly in Europe, that does not require its youngsters to study its history; (2) the introduction of Modern Studies in 1962 and its growth over the past 30 years gradually has weakened the status of history in the secondary schools; and (3) history is not in a very strong position in the schools due to many conflicting interests and requirements. More research is called for and the paper sets forth questions that could be addressed in the future. (EH)
