Time for the next “re-centering?” How about college and university bond ratings? #highered #.edu

It’s time to “re-center” college and university bond ratings.

Based on Standard & Poor’s downgrading of Amherst College’s bond rating from a AAA to AA+, I think it’s time we do the right thing and just re-center bond ratings.

Why not? 

Isn’t this what we did with standardized test scores when we thoughts scores didn’t reflect reality? When the standards started to seem outrageous we just re-centered the scores, right?

We should do the same with bond ratings.

How can Amherst and Williams (both of which recently received a downgrade) not be the top achievers among us?

By the way, a re-centering would be good for all of us.
