An unrecognizable version of U.S. history, called APUSH, created by Common Core guru David Coleman and the College Board, is coming.
During an upcoming open conference call, three expert panelists will reveal and discuss what David Coleman’s new APUSH history curriculum framework contains, and why concerned educators and parents must speak out to stop this deformation of U.S. history in our teenagers’ minds, by informing our local and state school boards that this is unacceptable to us as parents and voters.
You’re invited to a telephone conference on this subject. There’s no charge. We’ll learn what the College Board has in store for America’s brightest students.
Call Monday, August 4, 2014 at 8 p.m. EST. The number to call is 530-881-1000, with access code 632867#.
A conference press release explains that APUSH pushes “a relentlessly negative view of American history” which minimizes or excludes American achievements while emphasizing every failing of our history. The new AP history does not even mention –at all– Jefferson, Franklin, Madison or Adams. It misrepresents motivations of settlers, misrepresents American involvement in World War II, and skews the American victory in the Cold War, for starters.
We cannot legitimize this negative, biased view of our founding by allowing it to enter our schools. From the AP classes, its version of history may trickle down into non-AP classes and homes where it can damage influence and alter America.
