Undergrad and grad?Yes, Cal State also does very well by these measures. @jared_cohen Most @larabar (but not all) are just fruit+nuts. @KINDSnacks has also started a new line, although the main line has sugar. @erikpavia Thanks, Erik.

Retweeted by David LeonhardtYes, Stony Brook is another engine of upward mobility. @JoeatMSDF @kresgedu @JamesKvaal @nytimes nostalgia over NY's City College and California's universities is overdone.

@rickhess99 Where can I read you on it?If loving this outfit makes me pro-Brexit, I guess I am pro-Brexit.
Retweeted by David LeonhardtEven more than vouchers, this is something that does not fall into mainstream school choice orthodoxy
Retweeted by David LeonhardtSeparation of church and state seems to elude the most extreme advocates of school choice. Me, I'm down with accountable, secular charters.

Retweeted by David LeonhardtSpeaking of which, @samarthbhaskar and @DanGendler played crucial research and analysis roles. @jbenton Be sure to read Dean's and Joe's substantial memo to the newsroom too? @jbenton Actual report. @richarddeitsch @nytimes Thanks so much.21/ Finally, it was a great privilege to do this work with @rudoren @JonGalinsky @karronskog @marclacey @giratikanon @tysone & @deanbaquet.20/ And the reason @nytimes is so strong today is because it has changed so much before.19/ This change is possible, in large part because the newsroom is so eager to change.18/ @nytimeswell and @nytfood have shown how valuable goals can be.17/ We need to become more comfortable setting goals and being self-critical.16/ We need to accelerate the hiring of top journalists, especially that diversify us in every way.15/ We need to put more tools in the hands of more journalists - eg video, audio, photo, graphics.14/ We need a major training push, in part to make our daily report more visual.13/ We all do too many things that are solid but don't clear the bar of "journalism worth paying for."12/ Given that, too many of our rhythms and too much of work still reflect old traditions.11/ Our strategy is to provide journalism so valuable that several millions people will pay for it.10/ @nytimes isn't trying to win a pageviews arms race and sell low-margin ads against the clicks.9/ Our business model is clear: Subscription-first.8/ As Dean says, we have changed more rapidly than many people expected - but still not rapidly enough.7/ ... and to the world's best staff of reporters, editors, photographers, and other journalists.6/ That's a huge credit to Baquet, Abramson, Keller, Geddes and other leaders who have changed the place....5/ NYT is in that position because of the quality of its journalism and the rapid move toward a digital report.4/ NYT work is the most discussed on the web, and NYT remains the employer of choice for top journo's.3/ @nytimes is in a very strong position, with more digital revenue than several of our closest rivals combined.2/ I'll summarize some of the points here, but of course the report has much more.1/ I spent most of last year on an @nytimes team analyzing our newsroom and future. The report is out today: @natsecHeather I'd read that piece. @natsecHeather remembered mostly for his domestic policy. Far more significant than most presidents'. Not true of his foreign policy. @natsecHeather @nytimes 800 words have their limits. I mention Syria but not his successes, which are significant. I predict he will be @charlescwcooke @jpodhoretz LBJ had bigger positives and vastly larger negatives. The net is worse..@DLeonhardt: "Obama succeeded by taking a rigorous, evidence-based approach to government."
