Wealthy Students Pushing out Low-income Students at Top Public Universities, New Research Shows

Findings from the report Moving on Up? were covered in the Hechinger Report:

More than half of the country’s top public universities replaced low-income students with affluent ones over the past 14 years, according to a new report

The study provides evidence to back up the sense in many communities that climbing into the middle class has become increasingly difficult for low-income families. It may also help explain some of the pervasive anger and feelings of being “left behind” that has shaped American politics since last year’s presidential election.
