I suppose this is mostly for Americans who went through public schools but anyone that grew up in a state/province system is welcome.
I grew up right on the Louisiana/Texas border. We had to take a full year class in Louisiana history I believe in 8th grade. This wasn’t much of a problem because Louisiana has a very interesting history with all that French and Spanish stuff as well as the antebellum South, the Civil War, through Huey Long and beyond. We had real textbooks and all had to stand up in front of the class and recite the 64 parishes and name the state tree (the water loving bald cypress) among other things.
Our nearby Texas friends had to take Texas history as well which isn’t that surprising considering that Texas people tend to pop a huge boner for anything that lets them talk about Texas more.
However, my wife didn’t have a Massachusetts history course presumably because it is so closely tied with American history. I can definitely see that but what about kids that live in Iowa or Oregon? There might be a content issue I suspect.
Did you have a mandatory state history class in school?
