Sissification of U.S. History

A reader: “Sissification of American history is definitely prevalent in our

public high schools. Even the 2003 Advanced Placement test for US History

(a test made by the College Board to give high school students college

credit for mastery of the material) did not have a single, direct question

relating to any battle or war. The AP course is supposed to be based on the

entire history of the United States–not just political or social movements.

Judging by the content of the test, the College Board believes that feminism

in the 1950’s is far more important than those rather inconsequential events

in our history whose titles may contain ‘war’ or ‘battle.’”
