History Cover Up sign now

Why do schools cover up what our country did wrong? I don't think they should.

I don't have any examples of what we did wrong except for our civil war. The reason I have no examples is because the schools in our country cover everything up.
In 8th grade (which I just got promoted from) we did not get in depth of Vietnam. Like why the United States was in the wrong.
I am one to tell you that I do not care about History or Social Studies classes. I think that kids like me would pay a little more attention to class. I dont like to learn about what we did right. I would rather not learn more than what we do now. Though I do beleive we should learn the truth. "Half a truth is not the truth," is what my dad tells me. So we need the truth not just the good part.
The rest of the history or social studies in my school is Geography in addition to World History.

I read this passage in an online debate; I started the debate in relation to the same topic:
Don't worry so...when you get into college you will learn what really happened...They don't want you to know the truth when you are young so you will believe what they want you to know. Did you know 2 weeks before Pearl Harbor was attacked the US knew all about it. They allowed it to happen for sensationalism and they knew if our fathers, brothers, and uncles were killed, the people (US) would want retaliation so it was a good time to test the A bomb on the Japanese people.
