Any one else seen of the scandel that collegeboard has gotten itself into?

Long story short, because of coronachan, they did AP exams online, problem is that they had every person in the world take them at the same time, including international students who had to take them very early in the morning like 2 AM.

What should be done about this? Collegeboard also seems to have monopolized education because of the fact that every university and college requires people to take the SAT which collegeboard owns

My idea would be for the government to not recognize it as a nonprofit anymore by taxing the shit out of them.
If they end up raising the prices of their tests, it would prove our point that they are a greedy company in disguise, or its gonna force them to just plain admit that they are a company, and that they will cut back on test costs to gain their nonprofit status back.

Either way fuck this greedy company, Collegeboard is one of the higher powers that is fucking up the American education system

unironically import the french model, which most continental europe uses, and which was also the standard in the eastern block: national examination covering 2-5 subjects which may vary depending on the curricula track (STEM-focused or humanities-focused), and competitive written exams for entry into higher education.

so? whats the problem? are they gonna do a separate test for each fucking region? get real

burgerstan education system is both free in time and money, especially when compared to anything to come out of europe or asia.
yes, you pay for the exam, but its literally a single day worth of min wage labour fee. in some europoor countries you literally repeat high school for a year or two if you failed your exam, kek.

>what is community college
>what are scholarships (that you can get from CC and the fucking SAT)
you know, thats actually the best part about the US education system. you can get scholarships and stuff for *free* at a time in your life when your choices are the most conscious and under your control. you can also go to college easily if you dropped out.
compare this to a lot of countries in yurop, where if you didn't get good grades in an even more arbitrary exam than the SAT that is not free in access (only accessible through the school system), you get fucked out of your scholarship AND have to frequent high school again for at least another year so you get accepted into college. this easily happens if you're poor, have a bad environment, abusive parents, etc; literally outside of your control. so much for meritocracy right?

because you're expected to know some things before university. a third of college graduates in the US are illiterate. not even joking, look it up.
