College Board officials have announced that they have made significant changes to the Advanced Placement U.S. History (APUSH) course framework, a move celebrated by a lot of Georgians, including many state legislators, concerned about the peddling of “revisionist” and “biased” history in public schools. State School Superintendent Richard Woods labels the long-sought move back to a more traditional course as “a step in the right direction.”
“I noted earlier this year that I had deep concerns regarding the College Board’s new APUSH framework and testing because I did not believe our nation’s history was being represented with a balanced approach. I was able to meet with the College Board’s president – at his request – a few months ago and had a frank conversation about my concerns. I’m pleased to see that many of the very concerns I addressed with him are reflected in the 2015-2016 APUSH frameworks.” Woods says.
