The Center for College Affordability and Productivity did a study on Universities and the professors to find who had the best and who the had the worst. The education think-tank pulled millions of teacher ratings from*. What did they find?

650 colleges and universities were evaluated to compile the list for Forbe's Magazine. Schools in the Midwest & East Coast have some of the worst ratings. No schools from the South made the list. It should also be noted that 16 of the 25 on the list are public universities.

Of the Top 25, 3 schools are from New York State. Take pride Rensselaer, you made the Top 10!
