College Board bars AP Government from teaching US Constitution and US wars

 

I have been removed from the Advanced Placement (AP) Government listserve for documenting US Constitution promises compared with these recent US ‘laws’ and actions:

There are ~ 2,000 AP Government teachers worldwide; my communications via the listserve documented these important policies that was news to many who only look to corporate media (who also publish our texts). I was informed by the listserve moderator that a Bill Tinkler of the College Board had deemed these posts “non-academic,” of “personal nature,” and “unsuitable” for consideration of teachers in a college-level course on government.

Mr. Tinkler ordered the moderator to remove me from the listserve.

Mr. Tinkler never communicated with me to ask any question or state any argument.

I assume that such action would apply to any teacher who juxtaposed the US Constitution with US policies and wars. Therefore, I’m taking Mr. Tinkler’s initial indirect communication with me to voice the College Board’s opposition to AP Government classes teaching the US Constitution as applied to our most important current events. I welcome Mr. Tinkler’s clarification.

I e-mailed our moderator that:

  1. Bill Tinkler will have opportunity to explain his position and cite the evidence.
  2. If Mr. Tinkler cannot support his censorship, he will reinstate me and I’ll post to our 2,000 teachers the professional academic standards of refutation for factual claims. If he can support his censorship, I’d be happy to correct my behavior both to the listserve and to the public audience of up to two million views a month.
  3. Mr. Tinkler will have two choices: either academic professionalism, or my  ongoing public voice of my findings of AP Government leadership.

I invited our moderator to join my voice of obvious US War Crimes and destruction of the US Constitution, and to help our colleagues overcome cognitive dissonance.

I promise to write with Mr. Tinkler’s response.

About the author

I’m a National Board Certified Teacher in Government, Economics, and History. From 1979 to 1997, I helped grow the citizens’ lobby RESULTS for US domestic and foreign policy to end poverty. After two UN Summits and both political parties’ “leadership” reneging on all promises (public and private), I shifted my “hobby” to research and follow the money. This has led to my current work to research, write, and lobby for economic and government reforms.And yes, these reforms begin with arrests of 1% leaders for “emperor has no clothes” obvious crimes centering in war, money, and corporate media lies.

    It should be patently obvious that schools are not teaching or discussing the Constitution or the Bill of Rights.

    Schools are presenting the Party Line as fact
    because they are funded by the Party.

    It should not be surprising therefore, that the College Board would not want a discussion to go astray of Party Line.

    Your pointed critiques of recent unconstitutional actions by the “government” are definately not going to allowed to be discussed in the mainstream.

    You got that right, Buzz. No matter. I’ll expose the lies just as easily as communicating the facts. All the oligarchs/1%/criminals have is BS. 

    The choice is also a test for the 99% to punch through obvious lies and censorship. 

    We’ll win.
