I am very interested in what other countries are taught in history class regarding America and their own history in relation to the United States. Would you say there is a bias towards your own country's history? Like when Japanese people learn about World War 2, do they feel resentment towards the U.S. for the nukes? Or do they simply learn the facts and nothing else?

USA are first slightly mentioned when we study Chilean independence, counting American independence as one of the motivators of Latin American wars of independence, but more emphasis is put in French Revolution in this regard.

After that USA only reapers when studying the world wars and the cold war.

Finally it appears again, in a somewhat negative tone, when studying chilean dictatorship during the cold war, emphasis on interventionism.

taught in history class regarding America and their own history in relation to the United States
I remember hardly anything concerning the US from history classes. Maybe couple of words about Civil War and independence from the British Empire, Far East and Alaska colonization, then WWII period, about Lend-Lease, Pacific Ocean theater.
In short, not much. Only facts without picturing them good or bad.
Though, we've had the course of European history, I wouldn't say there was no bias.

Learn about the USA as apart of ww1/2 and the cold war. There was also a unit on the American Revolution that my school didn't run.
