Scaling the Ivory Tower: The Enduring Importance of Need-Based Aid.
Macy, Beth
College Board Review, n188 p2-7,29-30 Aug 1999
A journalist and college instructor who attended college on a Pell Grant recounts her escape from poverty through education. She notes shifts in public policy toward financial aid through loans and tax credits rather than grants, but urges that the Pell Grant program be restored to the level of assistance provided youth from economically deprived backgrounds in the 1970s.
