Berrigan says AP course 'rushed'

Thursday, April 18, 2013 by MARK RECCEK in School

Catasauqua Area School Board member Dawn Berrigan has questioned whether Catasauqua High School was adequately prepared this year to offer the 10th-grade advanced placement world history course. Discussion on the topic occurred during the April 2 school board meeting.

"Why did we do this?" she asked the board. "We clearly weren't ready to do this."

Berrigan's concern rested with how quickly the course was offered to students.
