‘If I am going to make room for more of the [poor and minority] students we want to admit and I have a finite number of spaces, then someone has to suffer and that will be privileged kids on the bubble.’
AP classes, and the College Board, have too large a role in defining the curriculum of American high schools due to their de facto monopoly on the college-credit system for high schoolers.
It’s idiotic to decide who is important to study based on what their skin and hair looks like rather than our available knowledge about their civilization and its effects on the world.
It would be very tempting to dismiss this as a fluke, as something that’s not happening in your local schools or state, some crazy thing that only affects other people and other people’s kids.
The nation’s largest advanced high school curriculum provider persists in presenting ideologically slanted curricula to U.S. students at taxpayer expense.
The College Board’s new European history framework minimizes or ignores religion, free enterprise, the brutality of the Soviet Union, European intellectual history, and Great Britain.

The people who wrote and pushed Common Core on the nation are making bank while the nation’s kids, teachers, and parents writhe in the grip of their curriculum contraption.
Advanced Placement U.S. History curriculum needed a redesign, but not this kind.
Concerned citizens cannot allow the unelected, unaccountable College Board to force a biased course with a clear political agenda into American classrooms.
If the College Board’s actions speak louder than words, so far it hasn’t changed course on a plan to feed half a million kids slanted American history.
If anyone wants to examine the big billionaires getting inside the minds of schoolkids, a look at some numbers suggests target A-1 must be Bill Gates.
Turning Advanced Placement history classes into yet another credential mill hurts the middle class and those who aspire to it.
