What the hell are you talking about. My daughter took several AP courses in college, and got 9 hours of credit. She went on to make a perfect 4.0 GPA her first semester of her freshman year.

If she wants to go on to Medical School or many graduate programs they do not accept High School AP courses. Many medical students have to take entry level biology to get into medical school if they took AP biology

Not all AP courses are created equal. My point is that it is not "free". We are paying for it one way or another. If High School teachers want to teach college courses they should go and get a PhD.

If your daughter is that smart I'm sure she could've graduated early from High school and been a year ahead of her peers not wasting time finishing High School. Who says High school has to be 4 years?

It's yet another encroachment of centralized education bureaucrats on local control and parental rights under the banner of "Common Core."
