Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a resolution that requires the State Board of Education to instruct the College Board to revise the Advanced Placement United States History Test.

Highlights:
  • Requires revision of the Advanced Placement United States History Test to align with the “traditional” topic outline, which allows for incorporating the Georgia Performance Standards for Social Studies into classroom exercises and course material (Sec. 1).
  • Requires the Department of Education to explore alternatives to the College Board’s Advanced Placement program and consider the possible redirection of state funds to support any changes (Sec. 1).

 

Note:

NOTE: THIS IS A SUBSTITUTE BILL, MEANING THE LANGUAGE OF THE ORIGINAL BILL HAS BEEN REPLACED. THE DEGREE TO WHICH THE SUBSTITUTE BILL TEXT DIFFERS FROM THE PREVIOUS VERSION OF THE TEXT CAN VARY GREATLY.
