Essential Estrogen: Organization with conservative ties gives Iowa universities lower ranking
Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen
High school students still debating which college or university to
attend in the fall have some new information at their fingertips.
Unfortunately, the information, provided by an organization with
conservative ties, doesn't shine a favorable light on most Iowa
institutions of higher education. Richard Vedder, director of the
Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit Center for College Affordability and
Productivity (CCAP) writing for Forbes, took a direct swipe at the
popular college and university rankings produced by U.S. News & World
Report, saying the "rankings ought to get a D."
