Identifying The Worst Colleges In America
For years, Washington Monthly has been rating and ranking the nation’s colleges.
But for its 2014 edition, the magazine has done something new. It has put out a list of what it says are the nation’s worst colleges. That is, schools with high tuition, low graduation rates and high student debt rates.
Labeling colleges as the “worst” is controversial of course. But with more and more Americans feeling like they’ve been priced out of college or are not getting bang for their buck, questions of value and return on investment are getting lots of attention, especially from the Obama administration.
