Advanced Displacement

A Southern California assistant principal, who blogs as Q6 at Assistive Principles, proctored an Advanced Placement test last month. In a place where no one has to be unless they want to, he finds ... apathy. (Hat tip to Teacher magazine's Blogboard.)

"During one exam, I toured around the room making sure no one was cheating only to find that very few were taking the test at all. One of the questions provided statistics about an E. Coli outbreak and asked for a statistical analysis. One student wrote the words 'I don't know' and then proceeded to draw the finest pencil sketch of a hamburger I'd ever seen in my life. Another student created a word search puzzle that filled the page...with a list of words to be found."
