The group’s president, Peter Wood, called the framework politically biased. One of his many complaints is about immigration: “Where APUSH sees ‘new migrants’ supplying ‘the economy with an important labor force,’ others with equal justification see the rapid growth of a population that displaces native-born workers from low-wage jobs and who are also heavily dependent on public services and transfer payments.”
Here’s the full text of the relevant bullet point in the standards.
The new migrants affected U.S. culture in many ways and supplied the economy with an important labor force, but they also became the focus of intense political, economic, and cultural debates.
You can decide for yourself whether the standard sweeps under the rug the fact that many people wish there were fewer immigrants. But shouldn’t Newsweek print the whole sentence, instead of letting its readers rely on selective quotes? Why do I have to look this stuff up myself?
