(Politico)   What? Are you telling me that doing a rapid "learning" of college level material in high school at a sped up pace and having the students forget what they "learned" after six months is a bad thing? Somebody get my fainting couch   (politico.com ) divider line

Pocket Ninja: AP classes (and all of its prep, curriculum, and testing-related materials) are a cash cow for the College Board, which is the main reason the College Board works so hard to constantly push it out to schools.



And also a cash cow for the school districts in the form of additional state monies for students in AP courses. Heck even the superintendents are in on the money grab. The lady here in Hillsborough Co., FL, Mary Ellen Elia, made $7850 in bonus money in 2008 due to her based on the number of students in AP classes.
