History starts in 1450

College Board wants to make change to AP History test. Will only check knowledge starting in 1450 AD.
Objections seem to focus on that's not woke, you're ignoring non-white great civilizations that could minority students feel good about themselves.
My conspiracy view; This allows them to not teach about history in time BC. Would have to explain change from BC to AD.. that was a Scientific designation change, this is a history course.

    Pretty certain that these young brainiacs were not students in any of these history classes.

    Off-topic; Latest Hollywood outrage about Trump. Trump recently signed Exec Order saying that Admin Law Judges can be politically appointed. Director Ron Howard retweeted Breakfest Media WH correspondent on this, commenting that ‘many have sacrificed & died for our checks & balances…’ WH correspondent left out (and maybe Mr. Howard did not know) that Trump signed EO bc a Court just ruled that an ALJ was incorrectly appointed and invalidated ALJ’s decision in a case. This ruling could apply to most ALJs. So Trump is protecting good governance, not being a dictator consolidating power. May be better long-term fix but that will take legislation (and time). Trump is doing immediate protection.
    Bottom Line; A-List Hollywood Director is yelling Dictator over Trump protecting our government decisions from anarchy.

    Politico headline is that Trump tightens control over regulatory judges. (Didn’t read article to see if it mentions Court ruling.)
