A good interview with Michael Crow, president of Arizona State University, America’s largest public university. He makes two really good points:
1. Most college rankings are based on exclusivity (admissions rates), but what’s importance is achievement upon graduation.
2. Graduation rates vary by family income (sadly). “Having a more diverse class — more kids working while in college, more first-generation college students — affects graduation rates.” (It seems we need to do more to help talented kids from lower income families persevere to graduation.)
