AP History Not Cutting Slavery Mentions

On Wednesday, Newsweek reported that the newly redesigned framework for the Advanced Placement course in U.S. History for high school students would see a lot less mentions of the word “slavery.” On Thursday, Newsweek corrected their article stating that "there are roughly the same mentions" of slavery in both documents. A tweet by Newswork correcting the story indicated that "there are 62 references in this year's document to 63 in last year's" to the word "slavery." There still will be a new section devoted to "American exceptionism."
