From the always entertaining AP:
A decision to take Advanced Placement biology instead of gym will cost a Bow High School senior her diploma, but it won’t keep her from going to Trinity College in the fall.
Though Isabel Gottlieb is a good student, a trumpet player in the school band and holds varsity letters in three sports, she discovered last fall she was one gym class shy of having enough credits to graduate next month.
She asked for a waiver, but the school wouldn’t budge, telling her instead she had to drop a class to take gym. “Why would I drop an AP biology class to take P.E.?” the 18-year-old asked. “It’s just not on my priority list.”
