Me parece muy bien, que se enseñe a los niños y jovenes, todo lo relacionado con la historia presidencial y algunos datos interesantes sobre los mismos. Como decia el filósofo: "La historia es la maestra de la vida." De ahí que conocer es importante para cada una de las etapas de la existencia y así aprender a discernir en cada evento, aquello que hemos de decidir. Es una gran alternativa. Ignorar la historia es un riesgo que no se debe correr.
