RNC rejects Common Core B.S.

The RNC passed a resolution Friday describing how an estimated 500,000 students take the College Board’s Advanced Placement U.S. History course each year, a course it says is traditionally designed to present a balanced view of American history to prepare students for college-level history courses.

Yet the College Board, the RNC resolution states, has released a new framework for the course “that reflects a radically revisionist view of American history that emphasizes negative aspects of our nation’s history while omitting or minimizing the positive aspects.”

The resolution calls on the College Board to delay the rollout for “at least a year” and calls on state legislatures and the U.S. Congress to investigate.

Sounds like someone has a lot of faces to punch now.

Here is a great article to bring you up to date on the situation.
