Nationwide conference call on the new  
(anti)AP U.S. History Standards

(You won't recognize your country.
July 28, 2014

Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC) in partnership with American Principles in Action is hosting a nationwide conference call concerning the rollout of the new Advanced Placement U.S. History Curriculum Framework (APUSH) and exam.


The College Board, led by David Coleman, the "architect" of Common Core is rolling out the new APUSH course and exam next month (August 2014). The new APUSH Framework is an all-out assault on our country's heritage. Jane Robbins with American Principles Project stated this concerning the new APUSH Framework, "The redesigned Framework is best described as a curricular coup that sets a number of dangerous precedents. By providing a detailed course of study that defines, discusses, and interprets "the required knowledge of each period," the College Board has in effect supplanted local and state curriculum by unilaterally assuming the authority to prioritize historic topics."


Tanya Ditty, CWALAC of Georgia State Director and former AP U.S. History teacher made this statement concerning the new Framework, "When I first read the new APUSH Framework, I didn't even recognize it as American history standards. From this Framework, I didn't recognize it as my country."


Here is a sampling of what our nation's brightest high-school students can expect: 
  • A relentlessly negative view of American history, which emphasizes every problem and failing of our ancestors while ignoring or minimizing their achievements.
  • Almost total silence about the Founding Fathers, including no mention of Jefferson, Franklin, Madison, and Adams, and almost none of the Declaration of Independence.
  • Omission of military history, battles, commanders, and heroes.
  • A biased and inaccurate view of many important facets of American history, including the motivations and actions of 17th-19th-century settlers, American involvement in World War II, and the conduct of and victory in the Cold War.
We invite all concerned parents, grandparents and citizens, whether you have students in AP courses or not, to join this very important conference call. A panel of experts will educate you on what the College Board has in store for America's AP U.S. History students and will explain specific steps that can be taken to push back against this egregious attack on the U.S. History standards and curriculum.


Without state pushback, this new APUSH Curriculum Framework will go into effect this fall (2014). Without state pushback, APUSH teachers may have to ignore their own state's U.S. History standards if they hope to prepare their students for success on the new APUSH exam - which will NOT cover material outside the new Framework.
