    A better question is "When did they start teaching current events in school, primarily, when did they start teaching it in grade school." because that was never a course I had

    Not in preschool, grade school, high school, college, or grad school. And that's a lot of school.

    It was a class in high school for us but it was given the same respect as replacing physics with geology. It was a "gimme A" that jocks took to remain on the football team instead of taking a real history course.

    Ah, I was a jock, but I also took real classes for the most part.

    That's funny, because my son has it every day as a part of 'social studies' class......

    Weird. When I had social studies it focused on the various branches of the social sciences and humanities.

    What do they do now? Watch Fox and Friends?

    Yes. I do. I fail to see how that is relevant to this discussion.

    It would have explained how you would have had no knowledge of current events being part of the school curriculum......
    I suppose different school systems have different agendas.....

    I suppose you were grasping at straws to establish some relevance.
