Here is an op-ed piece on Campus Sexual Assaults and U.S. News & World Report college rankings.
Several weeks ago a question was raised about U.S. News & World Report college rankings and whether or not they should include campus sexual assaults.
The U.S. News & World Report rankings are a hugely influential factor in how millions of people make college decisions every year.
“Brian Kelly, the editor of U.S. News & World Report, just announced that U.S. News will not include campus sexual-assault data in it’s annual college ranking this year, despite pleas from 12 members of Congress, citing the “unreliable” and “inconsistent” nature of the data. Moreover, even if better data were available, U.S. News would not include sexual assault information because:
Campus safety is not among the factors that U.S. News believes is directly tied to academic quality.”
This decision upset millions of readers.
The best way to defend yourself against any kind of assault anywhere is with a self-defense product such as a stun gun or a pepper spray. We always recommend pepper sprays that are on keychains because that way it is with you all the time.
The Mace Triple Action Spray as shown here has pepper, tear gas and a UV marking dye.
