It turns out that, each year, more than half a million low income students and students of color are “missing” from AP and IB participation — students who would benefit from these advanced opportunities if they participated at the same rate as other students. It also turns out that expanding AP to more schools is only a small part of the solution. The data show that if every school with an existing AP program focused on finding its own “missing students,” we could almost entirely eliminate the national participation gaps.
