USC to remove its School of Education from U.S. News & World Report’s next annual ranking "after discovering 'a history of inaccuracies'"

No further details yet, other than that the "history of inaccuracies" goes "back at least five years."

Timely in light of articles like this about one of the candidates for mayor:

USC was in a free fall. Then it turned to Rick Caruso


Caruso stepped into the volunteer post and quickly transformed it into a full-time position that made him at times over the last four years the de facto chief executive of USC, a multibillion-dollar healthcare and education enterprise that is the city’s largest private employer.

Now running for mayor, Caruso is inviting voters to look closely at that most recent entry on his resume. His campaign has presented him as ready to fix L.A.’s crime, homelessness and corruption the way he “cleaned up the messes at USC.”

Speaking of, this what he's using as his message:

"Everybody in this city — at every corner of the city, no matter where you live, what your background is — is scared to walk out their doors." ... "Right now we have some of the worst crime we’ve had in the history of Los Angeles."
