Well, according to the Fraser Institute's Executive Vice President, the school rankings are actually a tool in the Institute's "communications agenda," part of a strategy designed to "convince people" there's a "problem."

That's what Fraser Institute VP Jason Clemens told a 2014 workshop organized by the Atlas Network, a Washington-based umbrella organization for right-wing think tanks and political action groups, funded by Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation and other wealthy donors connected to the American Tea Party movement.

Asked about education reform – usually a code word for publicly subsidizing private schools in Tea Party circles – Clemens pointed to the Institute's school rankings as a good example of how to "set-up your research agenda and your communications agenda."
