The inequity of college opportunities

TomPaine.com runs an informative little article about the declining educational opportunities for lower income Americans.

Nut graf:

Enrollment at four-year colleges increased by 20 percent for the richest segment of Americans in the last two decades, while it actually declined among lower-income children. As David Brooks put it, "…each generation of Americans seems to be challenged in its own way to provide its children with an open field and a fair chance."


It is unconscionable and, more pragmatically speaking, unwise and harmful to the economy to let that situation persist.
