Callista Gingrich: America's Students Failing To Learn History

Callista Gingrich is the author of three children's books about American history, including the new book, "Yankee Doodle Dandy."

She appeared on "New Day" Tuesday to speak about the book and how it is meant to celebrate American history.

In an opinion piece on CNN.com, Gingrich writes:

It's vital that young Americans learn the history of our amazing nation.

Being an American requires knowing what it means to be an American. It's the fabric that binds us together and helps us understand who we are.

Today, unfortunately, many of our students are failing to learn American history, including our founding principles and values. And they're failing to learn why America remains an exceptional nation.
