Fitzsimon Beclowns Himself On #NCSPIN Over #APUSH

How many false statements, tea party smears and general bile can one fit into 1 minute and 23 seconds?

Watch @Fitzsimon make an ass of himself on #APUSH with a fountain of smears and rhetoric. http://t.co/SKgFYBQJU2 #nced #ncpol

It’s clear from the moment he opens his mouth, Fitzsimon knows NOTHING about APUSH. Reminds me of the type of crap News and Observer put out on APUSH. Alternatively, Fitzsimon does know APUSH is seeing a radical, leftist swing which is why he politicized criticism of it to death in less than a minute.

News and Observer Uses Smear Attempt To Protect #APUSH

Alright, this is going to be a long article. Get your coffee and settle in.

At the News and Observer, the headline reads, “NC education department used Koch-funded group for proposed history lessons”. Take a moment to go read it, but don’t be sipping that coffee when you do. I have to admit, even for News and Observer, this article was a bad joke. I left a comment on the actual article which I am not going to rehash but has important points in it; you can hit that at the bottom of this article.

Narratives are now News….

KEEP READING — There is much, much more. Continue reading

NC #APUSH Update: State Board of Ed Calls Special Meeting

At the October meeting of the State School Board, it was promised that APUSH would be getting a debate. This appears to be happening with this special meeting being for Monday, December 1st.

I am glad to see Larry Krieger presenting as suggested by Ms. Oxendine. NC teacher Ted Dickerson was involved in the new and controversial APUSH framework and was originally mentioned to debate Krieger by Mr. Ford. It would appear the College Board is sending in one of their big guns instead – Executive Director, John Williamson.

It is worth noting that on Tuesday, December 2nd, the North Carolina General Assembly’s Education Oversight committee will be hearing APUSH testimony as well.

The College Board has sent a warning ‘touch-base’ letter to the NC State Board of Education, because clearly the NC State Board of Education must be confused if they are questioning APUSH. Right?
