  2. The US News ranking calculations are decent, but they are not wholly objective.
    there is a lot of weighting and subjectivity built into the calculations.

    Things like “Equity Gap” and “Relative Performance of Historically Underserved Students” are mixed in with “Absolute Performance” and “College Readiness”.
    They also “Regress the Performance Index” (aka lower the standards) for “Historically Underserved Students” helping to artificially improve the scores of poorly performing schools.

    It would be nice to know which schools are producing the absolute best, most quantifiably educated students.

    At least they do not include any points for “wokeness agenda” in their calculations.

  3. Top marks?! Who really thinks being 36 in NJ and 814 in national level are great marks? Must be the very woke Gorman and his very woke teachers who think so. How low the expectations have gone. Go back and compare with rankings a few years back not to mentions a couple of decades ago. Shameful.
