more brilliance from the administration
I read in the NY Times this morning that a federal higher education commission wants a measure to make sure the universities are doing their job. Possibly through standardized testing. Because we all know how well standardized tests taken in high school predict college performance, and how much they improve high school education. The idea that a single test could measure what all kinds of different people in different programs at different schools get from their education is ludicrous. Did these bureaucrats GO to college? Hopefully this is one guy talking and won’t turn in to policy.
