West Virginia Falling Behind in Advanced Placement Classes

Filed under: Educational Technology — admin @ 12:29 am


A study shows West Virginia is behind when it comes to making sure low-income students have access to advanced placement classes. The number of low-income students taking Advanced Placement courses around the nation has more than quadrupled in the last decade, according to the College Board. In West Virginia, nearly 52 percent of students receive free or reduced lunches – an indication of poverty – but such students make up only 16 percent of exam-takers. Students can take AP courses online in West Virginia, but being self-paced is often more difficult than a traditional classroom setting.
