Closing the achievement gap requires consistent and transparent state policies. One glaring need is adopting a clear state policy for awarding Advanced Placement (AP) college credit. In other words, some public colleges give credit for a score of three of higher, while others only offer college credit for scores of five. This lack of consistency and transparency in what public institutions consider to be a “qualifying score” leaves many prospective students behind—many who have earned a College Board certified qualifying score of 3 or higher on the rigorous AP exam. Twenty other states currently have state or system-wide AP credit and placement policy, Mass Insight Education believes that Massachusetts should be one of them.
Come learn about this AP credit policy issue and engage with like-minded young professionals around what we can do about it. With the help of YP4Ed, we can help close the achievement and opportunity gaps that exist in our communities.
