Is it really necessary for children to work as hard in school as adults? Shouldn't they be able to enjoy life just a bit before becoming an adult?
Do the Ivy's and UCs and Northwesterns really only admit AP students? I read that AP courses are valuable because it separates the motivated from non-motivated students. However, most of our students are motivated anyway and PAUSD schools are not easy. Not like we have a whole lot of weak students and the few need to rise to the ranks of APs to get a decent class. The weak students here are still superior to most other schools. How good is a top GPA without AP classes?
