The 'Bottom' Seventy Percent: What America's Elite Institutions of Higher Learning Owe to Everyone Else

Bookmark and Share Report Misuse or Glitches

Abstract:

In this inaugural essay for the WISCAPE Viewpoints series, Kevin Carey argues that students with the greatest educational need--low-income, part-time, first-generation, working parents, immigrants, and people of color--are systematically funneled into institutions with the fewest resources. In response, elite universities must be uncommonly generous in the years ahead with respect to funding, transfers, and the amount of students they will serve.
