History students will no longer tolerate or believe grand narratives | Colm Tóibín | Comment is free | The Guardian.

So many big issues in such a short article.  Fascinating to me because my other historical passion (aside from the early modern) is Irish history.  Of all the places in the world where you might drop mandatory history in schools, I’d have thought Ireland would have had more sense.  Of course, the fact that it’s no longer compulsory doesn’t mean it will disappear from the curriculum altogether, but it’s a worrying thought…
