Jay Mathews revisits college rankings in his Wash. Post online column. A little background here.

In the NYT David Brooks turns in an interesting column about cultural capital:

…life prospects are wildly unequal. As Ross Douthat notes in The Atlantic Monthly, a child growing up in a family earning over $90,000 has a 1 in 2 chance of getting a college degree by age 24; a child in a family earning $35,000 to $61,000 has a 1 in 10 chance; a child in a family earning under $35,000 has a 1 in 17 chance.

But, because of this new Times Select service, you can’t read the whole thing unless you subscribe, get it at the newsstand, or it pops up here.
