A problem I know some of the people that attend Valley Stream South High School is the process of dropping Advanced Placement classes. The process includes a long procedure of getting signatures from key participants in that subject. When a student doesn't obtain these signatures their drop is invalid regardless of whether or not they had a valuable reason. When I was given the "Effect Change" project from my APUSH teacher Mr. Francesco Visone it was clear the route I would take. I know personally I have been denied the opportunity to drop an AP class multiple times. These classes can impact a students mental, emotional, and social health. Not to mention the amount of money that needs to be payed to take AP tests that aren't even guaranteed college credits. I believe that students should have the final say and be able to drop AP classes, if they believe it is too much for them because regardless of the reason, a students opinion in the classes they take should be the school's top priority, not attempting to force kids to take tests in order to make their school appear pleasing due to the amount of people scoring decently on these tests. Join me in my fight for change and sign this petition whether you agree with me or you too, have had to go through what so many have to.
