Parents: Are AP classes a waste of time....or WORSE?
If you have a kid going to highschool, then please pay attention to this.
I first wrote about it in 2005, and it was my most requested article for reprint EVER.
First, let me tell you what I see a LOT of:
kids getting loaded up with 3, 4, or in some cases 5 AP classes in one semester,
and they’re doing mediocre in ALL of them….which ultimately KILLS their chances of getting in to a top college.
Usually, it’s because ONE of the classes is completely over their heads, and they have to struggle so much to keep up in that class that they can barely keep their heads above water in the other classes.
