U.S. News Changes Its College-Ranking Methodology Again; Why You Sh...

September 17, 2018

Willard Dix writes: The college-rankings game has been silly enough for years, but now it's just absurd. U.S. News has just revealed that it changed its methodology again for this year's list, suggesting that it's now "woke" because it's giving more weight to "social mobility" aspects of each institution.

Students such as Ready are more fired up than ever about learning the tools of newsgathering, educators say. And at some prominent schools, there’s evidence of growing demand for journalism degrees as applications and enrollment rebound and investigative reporting classes fill up.

Inside the Spending Deal That Will Fund the Education Department

Inside the Spending Deal That Will Fund the Education Department

September 14, 2018

House and Senate spending leaders reached a deal Thursday that includes a funding increase for the Education Department.  The package includes a boost for education funding — an increase even slightly higher than what appropriators in either chamber had proposed.  The maximum Pell Grant would rise to $6,195 under the bill. That would be a $100 increase from the current maximum award of $6,095 and mark the second year in a row that Congress has increased funding for the program. The deal also includes a $70 million increase for career and technical education programs, which are now funded at $1.3 billion.

Hurricane Trump Bears Down on Science

Hurricane Trump Bears Down on Science

September 14, 2018

President Trump’s general distaste for the nation’s “elites,” a broad moniker that comfortably includes the professoriate, was more narrowly focused Thursday on a single piece of academic research that the president finds politically inconvenient. In two early morning tweets, Trump blasted the merits of a study from George Washington University that placed the death toll from Hurricane Maria near 3,000 — far more than the 64 deaths that the Puerto Rican government had originally acknowledged.
