Scholar: Under New AP Standards, ‘American History Will Not Be About America’

Stanley Kurtz, a senior fellow with the Ethics and Public Policy Center, sees America being fundamentally transformed by a host of pernicious Obama policies, including education initiatives which are nationalizing school curriculum without a single vote.

This month, America’s best and brightest high school students will take a controversial new advanced placement U.S. history (APUSH) test crafted by many of the same ideologues — including David Coleman — who birthed the unpopular Common Core standards for math and English. Scholarly critics of the APUSH framework, like Kurtz, are waking up to the dangers of the 70 or more pages of framework for teaching U.S. history issued by the College Board in 2012 to replace the five pages of general topics previously under-girding the flexible teaching of American history.

Warning of more subjects prescribed by the College Board, Kurtz says in this video interview that few are seeing the scope by which these progressives hope to nationalize America’s curriculum. Dissent and traditional notions will be less tolerated if the left continues unimpeded.

Asked about the stakes of Americans forgetting their unique founding, Kurtz says, “If we don’t know our history; if we don’t understand the principles of American government; if we don’t understand what the Constitution is; then we won’t be able to understand that the Constitution is potentially violated by a president who is overreaching.”…

…“young people who are coming out of these history classes are being primed for these kinds of bogus crusades” where the narrative of oppression trumps facts. There is “almost a yearning to recapitulate these old battles and a refusal to recognize we have made progress”…
