TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
The University of Toledo received unwanted
recognition recently, when they ranked 20 out of 25 universities with the worst
The list was based on figures compiled by an
education think-tank, but UT President Lloyd Jacobs says the data is invalid. He
says UT has some of the best professors in the country.
"The value of a college education is that you
learn critical education," Jacobs said. "Anybody with an ounce of ability to
think critically would reject that listing. It has no validity whatsoever."
The Center for College Affordability and
Productivity compiled the list of schools with best and worst professors by
using millions of teacher ratings at ratemyprofessors.com.
The ratings were one of the components that the center used in evaluating 650
colleges and universities.
Jacobs says there is a major selection basis
when it comes to which students actually go to the site, and that the voting
numbers are so small that the statistics don't hold any weight.
The number one school on the list for worst
professors was the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in New York.
