AP Rewards

For years, WaPo's education columnist Jay Mathews has long championed the idea that pushing students to take AP classes and tests is the best way to prepare them for a successful college career. Jay even came up with the Challenge Index to compare schools based on how many tests their students take.

One member of the Talk Team has spent much of this week taking his share of those exams, and he reminded us of another reward for academic rigor.

Free stuff.

All week he and his classmates have trooped over to KFC, Chick Fil-a, Rita's and other places that are offering free eats just for taking the tests.

"Dad," Young Talk tells us, "when was the last time you saw a line out the door of a fast food place?"
