AP Classes: Absolutely Preposterous Weapons Of Mass Instruction

Via Scoop.itThe Reflective Educator

This is a teen-written article from our friends at Teenink.com. Weapons of Mass Instruction have been discovered in schools nationwide.    AP, or Advanced Placement, enrollment supposedly signifies that a ­student is intelligent enough to take college-level courses in high school. In reality, it’s just Academic Pollution. You do not learn the material to become enlightened. You learn to pass a test. You learn so that you can impress ­admissions officers with your weighted GPA. You learn so that when you enter college as a sophomore, you can fast-track your way to a high-paying job and the “real world.” But signing away your childhood to the College Board is Absolutely Preposterous.
