Judy Scott-Clayton on College Rankings in the New York Times

Judith Scott-Clayton weighs in on the difficulty of ranking higher education institutions in an article in the New York Times.

“It’s a quest for the holy grail,” said Judith Scott-Clayton, a professor of economics and education at Columbia University’s Teachers College. “It sounds good, it sounds like something we’d love to know, to be able to rank the value of these institutions, but when it comes down to practicalities, it’s very, very difficult.”
