In 2012-13 Duval spent more than 1.2 million on failed A. P. tests
According to the Times Union: The district says that in the 2012-13 school year, 21,404 of its students took AP exams and 6,192, or 28 percent, passed them. The district covers the cost of the tests at 61 bucks a pop and that means we spent 1,232,172 dollars on failed tests.
Now some kids are taking the tests thinking or hoping they will pass but thousands are taking the tests knowing they will fail.
In this time of limited resources aren't there better uses of the ones we have?
