I read with interest your story on AP courses in public high schools ("Some parents, educators are rethinking role of AP," Jan. 18). My godson attends Boys' Latin. He is not an AP student. He is active in sports, the school chorus and the hand chime chorus. He is getting an excellent, well-rounded education. The assignments for his non-AP classes are thoughtful and thought provoking. He must respond to questions for which there is not one right answer. How very much that is like the life he will lead as an adult. He is being prepared to function as a participating citizen in a democracy. He is also being prepared for college.
