Well if reading the Charles County AP results made you feel slightly ill, then you better get the alka seltzer ready. Here is a link to the national statistics.

Thanks for posting these links.
The one in particular that is the most disturbing is:

Comparing the above mean scores to CCBOE student scores should instigate cries of outrage to any parent that has a child enrolled in an AP course.

Jennifer, please raise a huge stink with these nincompoops and ask them to justify the huge disparity between our scores and the country's mean scores for the subjects.

Can you ask them to look you in the eye, and with a straight face tell you "we have an excellent program going here"?

This is a scam and deceitful. Our taxpayer money is being wasted on almost every AP class in this county.
One or more of the following must be true:

1) the curriculum is not being followed in each class, or
2) the teachers can't teach the material, or
3) they don't know the material themselves and like their students, would fail miserably if they took the corresponding AP exam.

Which is it? Richmond and everyone on down HAS to be held accountable for these lousy and shameful scores.
