Is DeVos sending mixed messages on advanced courses and accountability?
from Education Week
U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos seems to be sending some confusing signals when it comes to whether states will be allowed to use Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate tests, the SAT, dual-enrollment courses, or career certifications to figure out if students are ready for college and the workforce, some experts say. Rating schools based on whether they get kids ready for college and the workforce was all the rage in state's plans to implement the Every Student Succeeds Act. And at least eight states — that's about half of the 17 that have turned in plans so far — want to use AP, IB the SAT, dual enrollment courses, or career certifications for accountability.
