Jay Mathews and the School Rating Scoundrels Club

Jay Mathews of the Washington Post is a highly respected education reporter that has been covering Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate programs for several decades.

Every year he produces the "Challenge Index" (published by Newsweek), which ranks public high schools based on their particiaption in the rigorous AP courses.

I felt quite honored when he recongized my report in his weekly column "Class Struggle".
