VA, USA — The College Board's "AP African American Studies" has received the green light to be taught across Virginia's Commonwealth following a review of the course.
The Virginia Department of Education approved the elective course at its last meeting, meaning high schools across the state will be able to offer the class starting next school year.
Earlier this year, Gov. Glenn Youngkin ordered a review of the class to ensure it followed Executive Order 1 which banned any "inherently divisive content, including critical race theory."
The College Board previously removed sections of the course containing Critical Race Theory, along with several Black writers and speakers.
