Seventy-two years ago, this past Saturday, America awoke to a new reality. For the vast majority of Americans today, the events of that day are something that is learned in history classes or seen in movies. For Beacon Academy students, working on earning their accredited online high school diploma, it is more than that. The school’s free online high school classes include US History. In their US History class, Beacon Academy students learn about the roots of the conflict known in the West as World War II. The roots they learn help explain the reasons that drove the Japanese to launch this secret attack and drag the United States into the war.
Beacon Academy, an online high school in Nevada, believes it is important for the students to understand history. The events in history affect the present as those who have lived through the events, of that bygone era, were molded by it. The belief system that emerged from World War II set the table for the events of the Cold War, the wars in Korea and Vietnam, the fall of China to the Communist forces under Mao Zedong, and eventually the fall of the Soviet empire.
The results of World War II were transformative on America. The country emerged as the leading economic and military powerhouse of the 20th Century. As a Nevada online charter school, Beacon Academy wants its students to be prepared to participate in the national debate that is currently ongoing. Regardless of whether the school’s students are for or against the internationalist policies of the nation, Beacon Academy students are well informed and able to articulate their positions on these important matters using fact and original sources and not just blind feeling based on the opinions of others.
