What's Cooking at the College Board?

Kati Haycock:

I’m writing to let you know that, after 16 years at the Education Trust, Amy Wilkins will be leaving early next year to take a new position at the College Board.

That'll be working under new College Board president David Coleman, of course.

The Common Core, particularly "if implemented correctly" as we say, undercuts the argument for The College Board's two best known products, the SAT and AP (at least in English and Math). They're not going to be sitting on their hands over in that wealthy non-profit.

At meetings, David Coleman has been very adamant that he wants to increase diversity in higher education and to understand why minorities are doing better at AP testing, but don't continue on to take the SAT or go to college.

He's also stated several times that he wants to increase diversity at the College Board itself.

As always, interested in your viewpoint on this.
