Avossa Increases Testing in Palm Beach
The Palm Beach County School District is spending $99,000 to force middle school students to take the PSAT. The purpose is to supposedly help identify students for higher level classes. This means more kids in AP classes and more money sent to The College Board.
In reality this is a data mining scheme. Students reveal all kinds of information to The College Board when taking the PSAT- including date of birth and sometimes social security number.
Oh, and it means more time testing.
