Rather sweeping changes coming in Advanced Placement courses — World History, German and French for the coming year, Spanish and Latin for 2012-13, and probably Biology. Changes for U.S. History (APUSH) got delayed however.
At AP’s website where teachers can look at the proposed changes, three quotes alternate on the first page, including one from our resident ghost, George Santayana:
We must welcome the future, remembering that soon it will be the past.
Promise? Threat? Meant to cheer, or strike fear and doubt?
Or is it just a good line from Santayana in an ambiguous situation?
