Pulling Rank: A Plan to Help Students with College Choice in an Age of Rankings
Thacker, Lloyd
New England Journal of Higher Education, v22 n4 p15-16 Win 2008
Colleges and universities are "ranksteering"--driving under the influence of popular college rankings systems like "U.S. News and World Report's" Best Colleges. This article examines the criticisms of college rankings and describes how a group of education leaders is honing a plan to end the tyranny of the ratings game and better help students and families with college selection.
