An update to my previous post on the subject. This brings up an interesting point, namely that constructing a fair ratings system is going to be difficult and could hurt many if not done well. That said, I end up being more in agreement with the latter points in this post, namely that there’s a lot of pork in higher ed administration, and a lot of this comes right out of government pockets. I also happen to still believe this could be based on relatively simple metrics around employability. Not saying it couldn’t get complex, but there has to be a starting point.
