Republican state Senators Dolores Gresham and Mike Bell asked the board to review the new curriculum.
The board held a discussion on the test on Thursday. Conservative activist Jane Robbins along with the conservative Tennessee Eagle Forum asked the board to adopt a resolution in which the board expressed “official disapproval” of the new AP U.S. history exam.
Although the board held a discussion with advocates on both sides of the debate, the board did not take any action. They said that the discussion filled the legislative requirement set by the state senate.
