The Parallels between Admissions to Independent Boarding Schools and Admissions to Selective Universities
Hillman, Nicholas
Higher Education Review, v46 n2 p5-19 Spr 2014
In England, as in many other countries, selective universities have been under pressure to show there are no financial barriers for high-potential students from less-advantaged backgrounds. For much of the twentieth century, there was a similarly lively debate about how to open up Britain's prestigious independent boarding schools to a wider clientele. This precedent provides lessons and warnings for selective universities seeking to broaden their entry today.
