Making the American Dream a Reality for Underserved Students

Making the American Dream a Reality for Underserved Students | JRD's higher education future | Scoop.it
For the past 30 years, people have thought of the American Dream in two ways: owning a home and going to college.

College for All: Creating a New Deal in Higher Education - Roosevelt Institute

College for All: Creating a New Deal in Higher Education - Roosevelt Institute | JRD's higher education future | Scoop.it
“Higher education” is a vague term. It describes a sector that is hardly uniform, with over 4,000 degree-granting institutions eligible for federal funding but serious disparities among them. A college education from one of these institutions continues to serve as a prerequisite to moving up the income ladder in our narrative about economic mobility. Yet,... Read more »

College access: Tuition only part of story

College access: Tuition only part of story | JRD's higher education future | Scoop.it
Eliminating tuition in public colleges and universities would encourage those who did not think they could afford college to pursue their education, and it would offer students welcome financial relief. To balance the state budget, higher education will experience budget reductions, and institutions will once again turn to increasing tuition revenues to soften the impact of these cuts. Making college more accessible and affordable to all qualified Californians over the long run will require a more fundamental rethinking of how California finances the increasing demand for higher education and plans for our collective future. During the past decade, thanks to great improvements in our K-12 system, high school graduation rates have steadily increased, and the proportion of students graduating academically ready for college jumped by almost 50 percent. [...] tuition costs are only part of the problem. Instead of just moving ahead with the “free college” plan as it now stands, we should step back and take a comprehensive look at the way we finance our public institutions of higher education for this and future generations. (While the public might be ready to support more money for higher education, they will do so only with concrete assurances that the money will be spent responsibly.) Finally, it means that students, institutions, policymakers and the public must have a shared understanding of how resources are allocated to ensure student access and success. If our goal is to ensure that all California students now and in the future have access to an affordable, quality college education, then our public policy makers and higher education leaders must build a shared vision of this issue and find practical ways to solve it.
