Publisher's Reponse

As previously communicated on April 29, the WSD staff connected with developers of the AP Government and Politics textbook to address a question that was poorly worded. Here is a statement from the AP Government and Politics book publisher:

At Bedford, Freeman & Worth Publishers (the Advanced Placement and 9-12 High School division of Macmillan Learning) everything we do is in service of our common goal with educators -- to see students succeed. We work closely with our authors in the development of our textbooks and supplemental material, carefully reviewing our content. In this case, we missed a question in our LearningCurve adaptive quizzing program during our editorial review that should not have been included.

The LearningCurve authors included this question in a chapter covering public opinion polling, and the question drew on previous polling from PEW Research. We recognize that there are better ways we could have showcased public opinion polling, and we deeply apologize for the disruption this has created in classrooms for educators and students. The question has been removed from our Learning Curve assessment bank and our team is conducting a thorough review of our materials to ensure all questions match our expectations for quality.
