September 28, 2016 by Eric Bledsoe

Do you know someone who’s starting the college application process? Then you can’t afford to miss this sneak peek into ACTA’s signature report, What Will They Learn? This alternative to the U.S. News & World Report’s annual college rankings offers students, parents, and guidance counselors valuable information you won’t find anywhere else. What Will They Learn? is the only college ratings guide that evaluates the educational quality of colleges’ core curricula. ACTA Director of Curricular Improvement and Academic Outreach Eric Bledsoe joins the show to explain what the college rankings DON’T tell you.
