McPherson, Michael; Schapiro, Morton Owen
Higher Education Management, v12 n2 p131-56 2000
Analyzes data on financing U.S. higher education, especially the role governments, institutions, and families play in meeting college costs. Finds fewer affluent students attending private four-year colleges and an increasing concentration of lower income students at community colleges. Considers implications in light of the rising economic value of education and the declining contributions of governments to higher education. (DB)
