College Board’s Preposterous Solution to Online AP Testing Equity

A NYC charter school teacher describes the predicament facing one of her hardworking AP English students that is a proxy for a host of problems students like her face repeatedly throughout their lives. It seems that this star pupil’s free 60 day internet service is going to come to an end before the administration of the AP tests she has worked all year to prepare for. Seeing this problem, the teacher called the College Board to see if they would help find away to help. Their solution? Go to a McDonalds parking lot to take the test!

The teacher bemoaned the College Board’s intractability on this issue… but this is just another example of how intractable rules have impacted immigrant students like the one the teacher profiled, including the possibility that DACA, the one HELPFUL rule that would open the door to citizenship for this hardworking and academically talented student, might be thrown out by the SCOTUS.
