Grading The Obama Administration's College Scorecard

The White House released its new College Scorecard this month to the delight of some, but to the chagrin of many. While students can now handily access information about college costs, student loans and average earnings of graduates, many college presidents say the criteria ignores other important factors such as student-to-faculty ratio and a college’s mission. In this hour of Midday we’ll hear from two college presidents, Patricia McGuire, of Trinity Washington University and Sandra Kurtinitis, of the Community College of Baltimore County. Are their institutions ranked fairly or accurately? What changes need to be made to the scorecard’s metrics? Kim Clark, college finance expert from Money Magazine, joins us.
