The goodness and greatness of America

 

Merits of our 1776 heroes

NEW 2014 AP U. S. HISTORY COURSE EMPHASIZES:

 

“European exploitation led to native decline and black bondage”

 

White racial superiority

 

Internment of Japanese Americans

 

Dropping of atomic bombs

 

Race and segregation

 

Relentlessly negative view of American history

 

 

 

CAUSE FOR ALARM

 

The new 98-page APUSH Framework replaces the 5-page Topic Outline that had been used for decades.

 

Clearly stated in the new APUSH Framework is that all AP exam questions starting in May 2015 will come directly from the new APUSH Framework.  This obviously means that APUSH teachers will be forced to teach the new Framework if their students are to perform well on the AP U. S. History exam that gives them college credit. 

 

Marxist Howard Zinn’s People’s History of the U. S. is listed in each of the 4 syllabi from the new APUSH Framework.

 

FROM JANE ROBBINS OF THE AMERICAN PRINCIPLES PROJECT

 

Jane Robbins said recently that her “…biggest issue with the curriculum[NEW AP U. S. History – APUSH] is how it portrays Americans as a thoroughly pugnacious bunch…

It presents American history as one long story of groups in conflict…

It does not focus on individuals at all.

The idea [of the new APUSH] seems to be that the only force in history worth considering is the group identity — and all of these groups are in constant conflict…

There’s no understanding of what makes this country great.

ongoing discussions are happening with educational officials in at least seven states to delay the curriculum [new APUSH] or block it altogether.”
