Why should history teachers not censor what they teach?

a blind person explaining an elephant in a zoo
that he did not see to a deaf person who can not hear.
each has his own version,each has his own interpretation.
no one knows for sure what is true,a fact or a fiction.
take it with a pinch of salt or even may be two.

It depends what you mean by 'censor'.
Clearly no school course or even university course, can teach 'everything' about a subject, especially a wide-ranging subject such as history, there simply is not time to do so. So some things have to be cut out or simplified to make the course manageable.
But no history should be ignored simply because it reflects badly on the people involved - which is what I think you mean by 'censoring'. The transatlantic slave trade, and the slave economies of the New World are good examples.

They should not. If we clean up our history to make us seem nicer we will lose track of the many mistakes we made along he way. Human nature will experiment and repeat all those mistakes and make a huge mess. And while you're walking around campus be careful of the toppling statues
