Traditionally, the story of American prosperity goes something like this: study hard, stay focused you’ll be able to get the education you need for your share of the American Dream — and the long-term prosperity that’s supposed to be part of this dream.
But this country stands at a crossroads with regard to the role that higher education plays in the American Dream. A number of factors — political, economic and ethical — have pushed us to collectively ponder and debate the best way to support the pursuit of higher education. Many of us, including me, have voiced our opinion and advocated for specific ways to maintain access to higher education.
