Again.. I feel like I am learning a hole different side to history then I was in high school. Not a bad thing but very interesting. In high school the 1920’s was in my opinion pretty glorified. We talked about all the positives, women empowerment, bootlegging alcohol, and extravagant parties. It was to my understanding in high school that people were finically stable during this time because of the economic boom. However, this lecture taught me a little something called the “poverty line” and how half of all US households lived below it during this time. With this in mind, why do you guys think high schools don’t teach these aspects of history we are learning now?
