Advanced Placement course shortchanges Blacks

The College Board has lowered its standards by offering a new course on African-American studies (“The College Board’s Racial Pandering,” The Wall Street Journal, Sept. 27). I make that charge because the new course will do little, if anything, to help the black students it is intended to serve.

What black students need is help improving their reading, writing and arithmetic skills. Instead they are getting a course that will only exacerbate their situation because African-American studies will be little more than a form of ideological indoctrination. How will such a course improve their ability to get a well-paying job?
