Concerned about APUSH? Please contact the KS State Board of Education

We recently posted current articles and information about the changes happening to APUSH.  There are local, grassroots efforts pushing back against this happening across the states.  In fact, Texas recently passed a resolution.  And a sample resolution to be adapted for use in other states can be found here: Georgia APUSH Resolution

Even though this is not specifically Common Core, it is an important issue in education.  We hope you will join us and take time to email the Kansas State Board of Education members with your concerns, and consider attending and speaking during the Citizen Open Forum at the upcoming Kansas BOE meeting on Tuesday, October 14, Topeka, KS (details below).
