How does your school pay for AP tests? Does the school pick up the tab, or are the students (families) responsible for paying for their own tests?
Beginning next year, our school will strip the "AP" designation from the transcript of any student that does not take the AP test. Currently, about 22% of our students taking AP classes do not take the AP tests, and I am guessing that cost is a factor for many.
It seems unfair to deny the opportunity of pursuing and demonstrating a rigorous curriculum to students who just can't afford to pay for the tests.
