Should High Schools Bar Average Students From Rigorous College-Level Courses and Tests?

Date: July 13, 2009
Author: Jay Mathews
QUOTE: Fifteen years ago, when I discovered that many good high schools prevented average students from taking demanding courses, I thought it was a fluke, a mistake that would soon be rectified. I had spent much time inside schools that did the opposite. They worked hard to persuade students to take challenging classes and tests, such as Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Cambridge, so students would be ready for the shock of their first semester at college, which most average students attend....Why didn't all schools do that?
