Oklahoma lawmaker targeting AP U.S. history to rewrite bill
OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma lawmaker behind a controversial bill that has gained national attention is now speaking out about the proposed legislation.
House Bill 1380 would bar the use of state funds for AP U.S. history courses.
AP classes are a nationally recognized series of courses that allow high school student to earn college credit without ever leaving campus.
The classes are not required.
The bill by Rep. Dan Fisher, of Yukon, has received a lot of national attention and criticism from educators after it passed in a committee hearing on Monday.
Instead, he said the bill was too vague.
