Some Georgia lawmakers say the new Advanced Placement U.S. History exam downplays American exceptionalism. Wednesday, they heard from members of the College Board, which issues the test.
Some lawmakers contend that the new AP exam presents a negative, slanted view of American history. They complained students aren’t expected to know documents, like the Articles of Confederation, the Federalist Papers and the Constitution.
College Board Vice President Trevor Packer said the documents are included, but different exams refer to different historical documents.
