Ask Gaston Caperton, President of the College Board, a question

The “Guidance Office”, a feature of the “New York Times”, is taking questions for Mr. Caperton to answer during next weeks series.

This week in the Guidance Office, The Choice is seeking reader questions for Gaston Caperton, who has been president of the College Board since 1999. The board is the nonprofit association of 5,000 schools and universities that is best known for its overseeing of the SAT and Advanced Placement programs.

Mr. Caperton, a two-term governor of West Virginia from 1989 to 1997, has influenced seemingly every hot-button issue in the educational admissions process for the last decade — especially the battle over the role of the SAT.

To submit a question, use the comment box below. Mr. Caperton’s first answers to select reader questions will appear on Monday and continue throughout the week.

Meanwhile, The Choice plans to provide coverage of the board’s three-day national forum, an annual meeting that this year begins Oct. 21 in New York City.

You can submit your question by posting a comment at the New York Times site.
