Ivies start dropping AP classes.
Original post made by College Board, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Jan 18, 2013
And so it begins. AP-mania is eventually going to wane because the coursework is not particularly good, the classes are often poorly-designed, and the instruction is provided by high school teachers rather than college professors and so is by definition not college instruction. Many elite high schools have already realized that the AP craze has harmed their students by stressing them out for no good reason. Good schools are dropping out of the program. Meanwhile, PAUSD continues to double down. When will PAUSD parents realize that the AP program is merely a profit-center for the College Board?
