CSULB 'Best in the West'
Full story: Beachcomber
It is ironic that the name of this "respected" profit seeking Wall Street corporate stock combine business *(BIG)* should be named the "Princeton" review. In 1933, Albert Einstein fled the NAZIs by emigrating out of Germany. Eventually, Albert ended up in the employ of Princeton University. Albert was a lifelong tobacco smoker who often extolled the many benefits of tobacco smoking. He was never found on the campus of Princeton without his beloved tobacco pipe that enabled him to heighten his powers of thought. Today, since the revolutionaries came to power, Albert Einstein would not even be permitted to be on the Princeton University campus, because of his continual tobacco smoking, including WITHIN his on-campus located living quarters. Today, as a homeless unemployed genius, he would probably be arrested by the smoke NAZI's for exhausting mythical "secondhand smoke" into the air surrounding his living quarters in a refrigerator shipping crate that would be located on the public sidewalk. According to a usually reliable source:
"In August 2008, The New York Times reported that a flaw in the company's *(Princeton Review)* website exposed data from about 34,000 Sarasota, Florida students, including FCAT test scores. In addition, names and birthdates of 74,000 Fairfax County, Virginia students were exposed..."
"On May 1, 2012, the U.S. Attorney for Southern New York and the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Inspector General filed a civil fraud lawsuit against The Princeton Review, allegedly the company had bilked a federal program for underprivileged New York City children, received millions of dollars for tutoring services that it did not provide."
"Test preparation providers, including the Princeton Review, have been criticized in the past on the grounds that their courses claim larger score increases than they deliver.
"College rankings, including those published by the Princeton Review, have been criticized by educators and commentators for failing to be accurate or comprehensive by assigning objective rankings formed from subjective opinions. The Princeton Review officials counter that their rankings are unique in that they rely on "student opinion" and not just on statistical data.
"The American Medical Association has criticized the Princeton Review list of Best Party Schools and requested that the list be discontinued. The rankings for LGBT-related lists have also been criticized as inaccurate due to outdated methodologies."
I am outraged. How can students be successful when the money that is supposed to fund education winds up in the wrong hands. And with the investiagtion by CBS2 LA news about how the money in the CSU is not handled correctly, guess who needs a reality check?
