Budget Cut Will Limit Low-Income Students' Access to AP Exams

Budget Cut Will Limit Low-Income Students' Access to AP Exams
March 19, 2012

A federal budget cut -- from $43 million to $27 million -- in funds for low-income students to pay for Advanced Placement tests is likely to result in many low-income students being unable to pay for the tests, The New York Times reported. States have been reporting to school districts that many of their low-income students will have to pay $15 for each of the first three exams they take, and then $53 each for any additional exam. Some students are reporting that they will take fewer exams as a result.
