College Board President David Coleman took questions from a town hall audience at the 2014 AP Annual Conference and spoke frankly about the importance and future of AP. The audience asked about the development of the College Board’s grade 6–12 work, the expansion of programs like SpringBoard® and AP Capstone™, changes to AP credit policies, the integration of mathematics into the new AP Biology curriculum, and the perpetuation of unproductive anxiety tied to the college admission process.
Coleman emphasized the importance of partnership on all of these initiatives moving forward, and said that the College Board’s focus is on enabling sustained practice through high school to prepare students for college. “Everything we do is reinforcing rather than replacing the great power of great teachers,” said Coleman.
