Barriers to Universal Higher Education.
Ferrin, Richard I.
This report was prepared as a background paper for a national study of changes in the accessibility of higher education fromm l958 to l968. It out- lines four major barriers to higher education: the financial, the academic, the motivational, and the geographic. Efforts to reduce these barriers have included (1) the creation of junior colleges; (2) federal, state, and private scholarship and loan programs; (3) special college preparatory programs; (4) comprehensive talent search programs; (5) modification of admission requirements; and (6) the creation of new colleges or the extension of old ones. The study concludes that these measures have been only partially successful toward attaining a goal of universal higher education because of the magnitude and complexity of the problem. The issues are well known, the objectives clear, but the existing measures are inadequate. There is a 7 page bibliography. (Author/AF)
