Do you think that's a valid reason?
I'm not trying to be sarcastic but I was just wondering because I had never heard that argument before:
<<<The reason is that CollegeBoard wants to make sure that only rich white kids can take the tests, just like with the SAT.>>>
At least in my county, this "white" school that is about 20 miles from mine forces everyone to pay the full fee for each AP test. The houses around that neighborhood are well beyond 800K.
However, in my school, which is still in the same county, the houses are around 200-300K and the people make way less money. Not only that but my school is 67% black and 21% Hispanic= minority school.
Yet, the government pays for every single AP test fee for everyone in my school. Everyone who takes the class has to take the AP test and it's free.
We never payed anything for the PSAT either.
Unlike the kids from the "richer" schools within my county...
