Louisiana should copy Texas on dual credits

Dual credit for high school courses is a great way to get a head start on college credits. Texas seems to have a good arrangement for having credit earned in high schools accepted by universities. I wish I would have had that opportunity.

Louisiana is a little behind in terms of education, I would say. I took all AP courses in high school but they did not count for dual credit. My parents could have saved a lot of money if I would have had those hours.

The Louisiana public school systems should come up with a better program so that students are not at a disadvantage when they go to college out of state.

  • I'm sorry. It has been a long time, but what does the high school have to do with how you did on the Advanced Placement Boards? Surely, if you got three or better, you should have placed out of introductary courses.

    On the other hand, if you merely took an "advanced placement" class without taking the board, you wouyld clearly have to take some sort of exam (usually the final) to demonstrate that you shouldn't have to take the course.
