jobs vs. living in poverty without them. I guess I'm the odd man out here in applauding their efforts to increase enrollments of women and minorities. Many of them don't have the familial and social supports in place to succeed in college. They aren't encouraged to go in a lot of cases, or maybe have dependents to support and have no funds to increase their lot in life. So what if the AP CS pass rates decreased. Enrollment and subsequent total number of students passing increased. Good on them, achieving a higher status in life through hard work and a newly available opportunity.
