Reimagining Educational Practices
After researching about university rankings and their relationship with quality education, I came across an article that discussed the role university rankings have played in our society. This article describes university rankings as an example of the social construction of reality and institutionalism(Fowles 2016). Which according to the article, includes the way the institutions interact with and affect society. I learned that the growing popularity of university rankings hide the important issues like affordability.
