Some good news (in my mind) for the AP curriculum:
For someone like me, who is not a huge fan of AP courses in general, this is a good change. More focus on research, and exams with optional parts so that teachers can Voltron a class together without worrying about screwing over their students when they skip a topic. Naturally, I’d like to see a bigger and faster change than a few schools having a three-year pilot program.
This also reminds me that I should do a more thorough post about the IB curriculum some day.
