No AP Economics at Redondo Union

Redondo Union High School will probably offer the course for the 2013-2014 school year.

Redondo Union High School will not offer an Advanced Placement Economics course this year, the school's student newspaper reported this week.

Shannon Rodriguez, the former AP Government and AP Economics teacher, was transferred to the College and Career Center over the summer. After reviewing 60 applications and interviewing 10 teaching candidates, the administration chose a replacement; however, she had no experience teaching an Advanced Placement class.

"It was a hard decision, and we realized we had to do (the thing) that was going to have the least negative impact on students," Principal Nicole Wesley told the High Tide.

It's likely the course will be offered for the 2013-2014 school year.

The College Board, which administers all AP tests, offers two AP courses in economics—macroeconomics and microeconomics.

Many of the kids took health online from BYU (is.byu.edu). Their courses are 100% certified by CDE and RUHS, or any other public school, must let you take them. I know that have AP courses, not sure about econ.
