What Matters Most? College Costs, Math, And A New Model From Topo

Eduwonk thought that all that mattered today was this.

But apparently that’s wrong and the world continues to turn. NYT’s Winter and Archibald of the Wash Times write up the new tuition data (more politics in the Archibald piece).

Surprise! Another excellent and provocative NYT column by Samuel Freedman. Read to the end…

Harvard’s Topo Hoxby has a new model for helping rank colleges in terms of quality. It doesn’t involve geography but does seem to rely a lot on the information students are acting on which may be flawed. Interesting nonetheless.
