Queen's University study flawed

A new study released by Queen's University in Charlotte purports to show that Wake County is producing students that are better prepared for college than students from Durham, Forsyth, Guilford, and Charlotte-Mecklenburg.
Don't believe the hype. The study does not control for demographic variables, particularly key variables like income level and educational attainment of parents. None. That puts the nail in the coffin of this study.
