The Georgia Senate voted Wednesday to suggest the state should all but ban Advanced Placement U.S. history courses statewide, saying state officials needed to protect students from a “radically revisionist view” of American history conservatives have deemed left-leaning and biased.
The non-binding Senate Resolution 80 follows complaints in Georgia and elsewhere that the College Board has too dramatically overhauled the course, which is part of a curriculum developed and administered by the educational nonprofit.
Critics complain it now glosses over or inaccurately reflects people and ideas including the nation’s Founding Fathers, the Judeo-Christian influences on the country’s development and U.S. foreign policy as outlined in the Monroe Doctrine.
