    In an exclusive report, Andrew Breitbart’s BigGovernment.com breaks the story of a new system of college rankings produced by ISI and the editors of Choosing the Right College. ISI ranks “10 Exceptional Schools” . . . and “10 Train Wrecks.”

    As BigGovernment.com notes, ISI’s report, “Rating America’s Colleges: A Ranking of Academic Excellence and Intellectual Freedom on Campus,”
    does “something radically different” from popular college rankings such as that of U.S. News and World Report: ISI “assess[es] ‘how well (or badly) a school does at providing the classic “liberal education” suited to a free citizen and a well-rounded adult.’ ”
