  •  a couple of notes (0+ / 0-)

    1 - increasingly more selective colleges/universities are either limiting getting credit or not even allowing credit for AP -  Dartmouth just joined the latter category

    2 - many prestigious PRIVATE schools (eg, Dalton in NYC) have refused to do AP, and some public schools are moving in that direction, trusting that their faculty can provide rigor and depth without the driver of the AP tests (or even the IB tests)

    •  I will say, though, (0+ / 0-)

      that my AP computer science teacher definitely did NOT teach to the test--- he was the JV basketball coach, and as soon as the season started, he focused on that and let us play Duke Nukem on the LAN.  

      Conservatives need to realize that their Silent Moral Majority is neither silent, nor moral, nor a majority.
