Finding America's Missing AP and IB Students

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version Share this

Programs like Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) are designed to provide high school students with challenging academic course work and a head start on a college education. But despite aggressive efforts to expand participation, there remain significant differences in the rates at which students from different racial and economic groups gain access.

If we can identify and remedy these inequities where they exist, these courses can be a powerful means of disrupting the high-end achievement gap. 

This is the second report in the three-part Shattering Expectations series, which includes "Breaking the Glass Ceiling of Achievement for Low-Income Students and Students of Color," the first installment.

The third report in the series will be released this winter.
