Low-Income Students: More Going to College, But Few Earning Degrees

Low-Income Students: More Going to College, But Few Earning Degrees | ED262 mylineONLINE:  ClassMatters | Scoop.it
A troubling good news/bad news pattern has developed among our low-income students: They're going to college in greater numbers than ever, but only a small fraction are leaving with degrees. 

A report released Thursday offers the latest opportunity to see the pattern in multicolored charts and graphs. They paint a portrait of two generations of low-income students who have raised their college sights only to stumble before securing the payoffs of a degree. Educators and activists worry that the pattern could limit their potential earnings and social mobility.

"When I look at these statistics, I think maybe we are profoundly and unequally fostering disincentives to higher education participation, especially among low-income students," Margaret Cahalan, the director of the Pell Institute for the Study of Opportunity in Higher Education, said during a call with reporters last week.

The data in the report by the Pell Institute and the University of Pennsylvania Alliance for Higher Education and Democracy, known as PennAHEAD, aren't new. Other researchers, including the University of Michigan's Susan Dynarski, have pointed out that the bachelor's degree completion rates for low-income students lag far behind their college-enrollment rates.  A demographic study, highlighted by the New York Times, showed that for poor students, four-year-degree completion for children born in the 1970s and 1980s barely budged, while it soared for children from the most affluent families. 

Like other studies, the Pell report illustrates the many ways that money serves as a key barrier to college completion for low-income students. It details the rising cost of college, and the shift of a larger chunk of college costs onto families.

Thieves follow the money, and wealth accumulates as we age. But the aging brain is not always well-suited to financial decision-making - and that creates opportunity for financial fraud and abuse targeting the elderly.

Is it something to be pat on the back about or not? How can they rob the most vulnerable in their latter years and think its OK because they some how benefit from it and who will know or tell and if they told who would even listen to what they are saying. If they are heard and believed they abusers will sucker punch with  health issue like they re incompitent because they have the oldz timers disease but before that came into place like it is now they made us their power of attorney, slide the papers out, and the issue Is dropped by man but not God. Do they God created the ear but can't hear, God created the eye think He not see everything, God created the nose think He not smells when something's fishy, God created the mouth think He can't speak for the abused including the elderly and I dare they tell any body God Is one card short of playing with a full deck aka God has Oldz Timers disease. The earth is the Lord and the fullness thereof , therefore really they ow nothing. They robbing God and think they getting away with it because man giving them a free pass dapped up no time served on earth but just imagine where they will serve time because of their own choices on the other side Judgement Day time. How do you say?

Coffee Party USA's curator insight, July 31, 2015 1:18 PM

"United States is now an “oligarchy” in which “unlimited political bribery” has created “a complete subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors.” Both Democrats and Republicans, Carter said, “look upon this unlimited money as a great benefit to themselves.”

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, November 19, 2016 9:53 AM
Sadly with the last election this month of Trump the American public chose to select this oligarchy by electingTrump giving them the confidence to empower the wealthy and incorporated with even more power to create even more money for still more power. The selection of Hillary or Jill would have sent them a message that we are not going to let them take our country "backward" without a fight. The mega international investors have already been able to see huge returns in a matter of days...check out the DOW....

The Koch  Brothers and ALEC corrupted, hand picked politicians and connections are being placed in critical roles to ensure the rich control all critical policy while most Voters now settle into their chairs to obediently entertain themselves with media, ball games and such other distractions until the next time they are needed to come out and "save babies and jobs" with these self-serving "leaders".

Now the American Trump followers will sit back confident the wheeler dealer will wheel and deal.....and he in fact has and will do just that. The thing is he "TOOK THE COUNTRY BACK" he just never actually admitted the rich had it increasing firmly before  and they were the ones losing the reins each year bit by bit as the people gained more control over those corporations and were reeling them in more skillfully each year. Donald took the country back for his own. They  are the ones that "dealt" the jobs away and created policy that allowed them to hide wealth offshore. All so that it could increase their wealth, thus their power and hold of power. These corporations heartlessly downsized without community or labor input. With this election the Oligarchy took the reels back from the people as well as nearly all the decks of cards and the wheels with which to deal. But would you except less from a bankrupt casino owner...."The house always wins" and it's owner wins even if he bankrupts the house.

Stigma, housing and identity after prison

Stigma, housing and identity after prison | ED262 mylineONLINE:  ClassMatters | Scoop.it
Existing research suggests that individuals who are released from prison face considerable challenges in obtaining access to safe, stable, and affordable places to live and call home. This article draws on repeated qualitative interviews (conducted every 6 months over a period of 3 years) with 44 formerly incarcerated individuals, to understand how these individuals experience the search for a home after their prison release. The interviews show that the quest for a home is central to participants’ reintegration projects as they seek to establish themselves as ‘decent’ and economically self-sufficient citizens, and shed stigmatized identities associated with incarceration, poverty, homelessness, and place
