It is more important for schoolchildren to learn about local history than world history. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

In recent years, many people have argued that school should concentrate more on teaching regional
history
instead
of
world
history
.
Although
I agree with
this
point of view, there could be a case for saying that learning
world
historical events
is
Suggestion
are
also
important for children.
First
of all, amongst there are several advantages associated with learning local past, the most significant of which is to understand thoroughly the origin and meaning of traditional events, customs and so on of their motherland.
Therefore
, the youngsters could maintain the valuable tradition for the
next
generation.
Furthermore
, local
history
is a storehouse of information about how the ancestors had lived, had thought and had fought to protect their land.
For example
, by listening about the rebellion of Trưng Sisters against the ruling yoke of Qin dynasty to liberate Vietnam, Vietnamese children could understand the value of freedom and respect the sacrifice of their ancestors.
Accordingly
, teaching local
history
is synonymous with educating about patriotism.
However
, we should not underestimate the importance of
world
history
. In order to understand more thoroughly and more deeply the regional past, it is necessary to relate the local historical events with corresponding
world
conditions.
For instance
, when studying about the Communist Party, which ruled Vietnam beginning in 1945, it is indispensable to acknowledge that the October revolution in Russia helped Nguyen

Quoc, later founder of the Vietnamese Communist Party, find the way to liberate Vietnam through Marxism ideology.
Furthermore
, as the
world
has become globalized, knowing the
history
of other countries is beneficial. People are prone to approach and support people who express
respectfulness

respectful
of the local culture and
history
.
Consequently
, it provides more opportunities for children to work and make friends with foreigners. In conclusion, it is my belief that
although
local
history
is more necessary,
world
history
has its important role. I am convinced that the study of local
history
should parallel with
world
history
so the children could apprehend
history
more effectively.
