    “A prominent Australian historian, Professor Stuart Macintyre, the co-author of The History Wars, was involved in writing the draft modern history curriculum.

    ”The rationale was that Australian history is best taught and understood within the broader framework of world history,” Macintrye says. Students could compare the recognition and rights of Australian Aborigines in the 20th century, for example, with those of indigenous people in New Zealand, Canada or Brazil. ”I think the idea of a separate subject isn’t terribly helpful.”

    YES.
