From The Chronicle:

In August, Mark Parkinson, Kansas’ Democratic governor, said that within 10 years at least one of his state’s public universities should be among the top 50 in U.S. News & World Report’s college rankings and that a second state university should be in the top 100. Now the Institute for Higher Education Policy, a nonprofit organization that studies college accountability, has released a policy brief urging lawmakers not to make changes in higher education based solely on those kinds of rankings.
