The College Board’s new AP U.S. History Framework distorts American history and shortchanges students by imposing a misleading account of American history on them.
Over 100 eminent scholars have publicly denounced the new Framework as an attempt to establish an “official” version of U.S. history – one containing “notable political or ideological biases” such as focusing on identity-group conflict while “downplaying essential subjects, such as the sources, meaning, and development of America’s ideals and political institutions, notably the Constitution.”
Because our children deserve an accurate account of their nation’s history. I oppose the College Board’s recent changes to the AP U.S. History Framework. I urge policy-makers to explore competitive alternatives to the College Board’s current domination of advanced-placement testing.
