Stupid, stupid, stupid educators

I'm sorry, but sometimes there is just nothing that can be said for a policy other than that it is stupid beyond belief.  As the LA Times reports, an increasing number of school districts are making Advanced Placement classes open to all students, regardless of the students' levels of preparation.  Further, if the classes are oversubscribed, a lottery is held, meaning that the best students can end up being excluded.  Jason Richwine has further comments.
