A Response to the NCSS Quincentenary Statement.
Social Education, v57 n3 p109-11 Mar 1993
Presents letter signed by 19 educators that disagrees with tone and content of position statement on Columbus Quincentenary issued by National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS). Argues that the encounter with Europeans effectively destroyed the indigenous culture of the Americas. Maintains that the Columbus voyages were not the beginning of a global economy, as the NCSS statement suggests. (CFR)
