School is for Education and Eduaction Only

A high school student in New Jersey recently noticed a political bias in her Advanced Placement (AP) US History class, which is concerning, particularly in a left-leaning state like New Jersey. I believe schools should offer unbiased learning, allowing students to form their own opinions. However, I've observed a tendency in our state's education system toward a liberal perspective, potentially influencing student beliefs.

Firstly, all history teachers I've encountered in my school appear to be liberal, often sharing personal opinions on political matters like taxes. They use derogatory language to describe Republican presidents while portraying Democratic presidents more favorably. Such behavior from educators is inappropriate and fosters a biased learning environment.

Moreover, our AP US History textbook, “The American Pageant,” exhibits a left-leaning bias. It frequently portrays President Donald Trump in a negative light, using disrespectful language such as referring to him as a “New York City real estate mogul and reality-television personality” who “bullied, belittled, and bamboozled sixteen rivals to snag — some said hi-jack — the Republican Nomination.” Maintaining a neutral stance when discussing political figures is essential, regardless of personal opinions.

Additionally, the textbook appears to favor Democratic policies and leaders, often presenting them as more effective or morally superior. Such bias can influence a student’s historical understanding, hindering their ability to form independent beliefs.

It's crucial for the school system to provide unbiased education. Exposing students to biased information prevents them from forming their own opinions and perpetuates the notion that there's only one "correct" way to think, contrary to democratic principles.

In conclusion, as a high school student, I'm troubled by the biased information in my AP US History class. Addressing this issue can promote a more balanced and open-minded society.
