Public Attitudes on Higher Education: A Trend Analysis, 1993 to 2003

Abstract:

This analysis finds that parents of high school students are increasingly worried about access to college. African Americans and Hispanics are especially concerned about access. Among African Americans, there is a substantial increase in the number who say college education is a necessity. At the broadest level, however, attitudes about higher education have changed little, with the vast majority of Americans believing that a college education is more important than in the past and that we should not allow the price of higher education to keep qualified students out.
