A's for public universities, F's for privates

At the next gathering of family or friends, or better yet wherever you are doing your drinking, ask why a major organization promoting the improvement of higher education has just given Yale, Northwestern and the University of California at Berkeley F's on its latest college rankings. Then when they turn in your direction tell them the same organization gave A's to Brooklyn College, Kennesaw State and East Tennessee State.
