Parvez Ahmed and Elizabeth R. Brown

To paraphrase an old adage, if something isn’t broken, why fix it? While Florida ranks poorly against other states on many dimensions, such as health and housing, higher education remains a bright shining light.

According to US News & World Report, Florida is ranked No. 1 in higher education. Furthermore, three out of four public universities in Florida are listed as top national universities, including three in the Top 100. Additionally, according to Stacker.com, Florida is seventh in the United States having the highest number of highly ranked colleges.

The data shows that Florida’s public universities deliver high-quality education and graduate high earners. But all that could be threatened.
