Open Admissions: Is Higher Education a Right or a Privilege?
Alba, Richard D.; Lavin, David E.
Social Policy, v12 n4 p37-45 Spr 1982
The view of higher education as a privilege, rather than a right, did not die with open admissions in the City University system. Rather, under pressures of the fiscal crisis of the 1970s, this view has regained its ascendancy as socially advantaged groups struggle to maintain their position. (Author/GC)
