Are AP classes the best way to prepare students for college?
from By: Bambi Majumdar (commentary)
During the early part of the 20th century, the gap between high school and universities began to grow, leaving new graduates unprepared for what was ahead in college. After World War II, the College Board came up with Advanced Placement classes to help bridge this gap. The program has been expanding to provide more access in low-income and minority neighborhoods. However, the need and importance of AP classes have been questioned in recent years.
