Com­mon cul­ture most needed

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Opinion -

Daniel O. Jami­son’s com­ments re­gard­ing the eth­nic stud­ies draft cur­ricu­lum for pub­lic schools are most wel­comed (The Bee, Sept. 14). As a first-gen­er­a­tion Amer­i­can, I find it dif­fi­cult to un­der­stand why we need to fo­cus on eth­nic stud­ies that only di­vide us fur­ther into tribes when we should be try­ing to learn more about Amer­i­can his­tory.

There are some good things in our his­tory and there are some very bad things also, but we need to have that dis­cus­sion in the frame­work of a com­mon cul­ture.
