Jeremy’s back from NYC today. He took the train down this morning and headed into work. We went to Home Depot tonight for life-sized angry bird catapult parts.
Going back to Vince’s schedule – Vickey noted that Vince, as a sophomore, is taking AP US Gov and that when we were teenagers, no one took that until their senior year. There has been some sort of grade inflation/acceleration going on in the 30 years since I’ve been in high school. In Vince’s grade, there are *8* classes of AP US Gov. If you estimate the total class size of about 500 and the US Gov class size as 30-35, then it seems like about half of the kids in the grade are taking this sophomore AP class. Maybe I’m mistaken and the 8 classes are spread out among the sophomores, juniors & seniors. Still, it’s a lot of classes.
