LITTLETON, Colo. (AP) - A small crowd of students and adults waved posters and gave speeches at a rally opposing a proposal to review curriculum of Advanced Placement U.S. history courses.

Several students gave speeches on Saturday while about 100 people cheered and held up posters.

According to the Denver Post (https://tinyurl.com/lzjxwvy ), the rally was organized by Jeffco Students for Change, a coalition of student leaders from the county’s charter schools and 17 high schools.

The newly revised AP U.S. history class gives greater attention to the history of North America and its native people before colonization and their clashes with Europeans. Critics say it downplays the settlers’ success in establishing a new nation.
