What The College Presidents Are Really Saying

There are at least two things that seem worth noting about the news that some college presidents are considering a rebellion of sorts against US News' college rankings (Is There Life After Rankings?). First off, the rebel presidents don't have all that much influence, given that so much information is already publicly available. Not participating in the survey is the most they can really do. More importantly, however, the presidents are signaling to each other and to others their opposition to measurements and comparisons that were proposed in the Spellings Commission report. This is just as much about reauthorizing the Higher Ed Act as it is about the US News rankings.
