Of all the former students I spoke to, only one will not need to take remedial math in college. So much for college readiness. A meeting at a local college with math APs fell on deaf ears as the college tried to stress how unprepared incoming freshmen were to succeed.
My former AP boasts about regents statistics. He gloats over the teachers that have close to 100% passing rates. He should be looking at remedial math statistics. But he won't. No one wants to admit to being a failure.
