Dear Commons Community,
Science this morning has an editorial entitled, “Revolt against educational rankings” which examines the current development of major universities walking away from participating in U.S. News and World Reports’ annual exercise of rating colleges and universities. Started by major law schools in the country, major medical schools such the University of Pennsylvania, Columbia, Harvard, and Stanford have recently announced that they too will no longer participate in the rankings game. This movement is long overdue.
The entire editorial is below!
