Financing Liberal Education in America: Public and Private Responsibilities.
Baum, Sandra R.
New Directions for Higher Education, n85 p101-106 Spr 1994
This commentary on McPherson (HE 534 036) argues that the affluent are being subsidized too heavily by current financing schemes, resulting in enrollment trends that favor middle- and especially upper-income students attending college, and exclude lower-income students. Higher income families should bear more of the cost of higher education, with greater assistance provided to those with lower incomes. (DB)
