Why promising minority students aren't signing up for AP exams
from The Christian Science Monitor
The number of high school students passing at least one Advanced Placement exam is up overall this year, but students from minority groups still lag behind their white peers, particularly in math and science. Among members of the class of 2012, more than 32.4 percent (950,000 students) took at least one AP exam, up from 30.2 percent in 2011. A decade ago, the number was 18 percent, according to an annual report by the College Board, which administers the tests.
