College Search Database Isn't Quite What Obama Described
The U.S. Department of Education launched a college search database Saturday, but it's missing the ranking system President Obama wanted.By Karen Rodriguez | September 14, 2015
The U.S. Department of Education launched a new website on Saturday to make deciding on college easier for students.
But there's just one thing missing: the college ranking system the Obama administration has been talking about for the past two years.
Obama introduced the system in a speech he made at the University of Buffalo in 2013. He criticized the sky-rocketing cost of going to college and outlined a federal ranking system that would be tied to billions of dollars from federal student aid. ( Videos via University of Buffalo, Boston College)
