Becoming a Citizen:
The College Board & the Undermining of American History

Wednesday | November 18 | 2 pm ET

On Zoom

Since 2014 the College Board has continued to revise and develop the Advanced Placement European, United States, and World History examinations. The College Board’s advanced placement history examinations effectively have become the senior year history courses for our nation’s high schools and the fulcrum on which pivots virtually all history instruction in the United States. When the College Board bungles its history examinations, our children forget what it means to be American.

The College Board's most recent editions of these AP courses and exams are yet another example of the College Board's failure to promote a real understanding of our shared American history. America must replace the College Board with new providers of standardized assessments. The College Board’s sorry record of revising its history Course and Exam Descriptions illustrates the endless mutability of error.

The National Association of Scholars' new report, Disfigured History: How the College Board Demolishes the Past, details the slipshod, politicized history in all three of the College Board’s 2019 revisions to its History Course and Exam.

Disfigured History makes clear that the College Board has made only cosmetic fixes to its history examinations, and it documents how it studiously avoids teaching any history that contradicts the narrative informed by the progressive left.
