We try to teach children all of our history but what happens in the future when there will be so many major events and discoveries? Will school last the rest of their lives? amirite?

History teaches only what is considered significant. As history expands and more significant events occur, they will displace events of lesser importance. So minor events will no longer be taught and some major events will be briefly discussed.

noo, i mean, in.. say, 2050, maybe there'll be a second holocaust or something, and then in 2080 they'll be so busy teaching about Holocaust II and then 9/11 and Oprah and Vietnam or something, that eventually so many significant things will happen that we'll have to stop teaching them to everyone (i know not all schools learn the same, but generally everyone knows about the Holocaust, for example.) Maybe that's already happened, I don't know. Kind of a scary thought.

@ClaireTheBozo noo, i mean, in.. say, 2050, maybe there'll be a second holocaust or something, and then in 2080 they'll be so busy...

Did...did you...did you just...just group a Holocaust, 9/11, and the Vietnam War...with...with OPRAH?

It'd be like how it is today. We can't learn EVERY event that was deemed significant at one point, but you spend the rest of your life learning on your own what seems important to you.

no. People can remember things that are happening. No one will ever forget 9/11.

Most of the world is aware of 9/11 and the War on Terror...

Well yeah the War on Terror, because that's actually abroad and because of that, people might have been bi curious and found out what started it, but I'm pretty sure for the most part other countries don't know about it.... That sort of stuff happens often to some countries.
