The national math scores of fourth and eight graders have dropped for the first time since the National Assessment of Educational Progress was administered in the early 1990s. Senior math scores declined also.

This fall 450,000 of the nation’s top students will study a radically different narrative of American history. The College Board, which administers Advanced Placement (AP) courses and tests, is rolling out a revised curriculum framework for AP U.S. History that paints America as an evil empire devoid of heroes.
